Summer School Holidays

All  activities are free, but bookings are essential. All bookings can be made online via our online event calendar (individual event links are also in the right-hand sidebar on this page) or at any of the libraries. Parents must be in attendance during these events. If you can’t make an existing booking,  please let us know so other kids can take your place.
