Virtual Storytimes have been held on a Saturday night during lockdown and until end June via our Facebook page at around 7pm and during Virtual Toddler Time at 10.40am on a Thursday.
An arrangement with the Coalition for Books NZ ran until 30 June 2020 which enabled stories to continue to be available online. Stories remaining have been given further extention, with permission from the publishers.

The theme for the School Holiday programme in July is Winter Warmers!
This is a virtual programme that families can do at home or away. Some inhouse events are also taking place.
Packs can be collected at either library while stocks last. A few basic supplies from home will be needed but the packs contain instructions (with daily videos on Facebook and YouTube available at 10.30am) and most of the materials needed to do the activities.
