    Our Library clubs are free and run by staff members who have an interest in that particular area. We offer our Library clubs on a term-by-term basis, so membership only applies for the one term, except for our book clubs.


    Things to Know
    Please inform us at registration if your child has a medical or behavioural condition. Your child will not be excluded, but we do require accurate information.
    If your child is unable to attend a club for the week, please make sure you email or phone us. We operate a three-strike policy: three unnotified absences and your child will no longer be a member of that club for the rest of the term.
    Ensure you supply us with an email that you check regularly so you can confirm your registration. Our clubs are extremely popular and fill up fast.
    Most clubs now begin at 3:45. Please double check your club starting time before arrival. Children can be dropped off and picked up 5 minutes either side of their club time.
