HomeEventsKids eventsSchool Holidays @ Cockburn Libraries

Each school holidays, Cockburn Libraries runs a series of events across our three branches. The events are aimed at school aged children and most of our regular programs pause in the school holidays.

In July, explore the amazing culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders with our NAIDOC themed sessions.

In September/October join us in expanding our minds as we delve into science, technology, engineering, arts, and maths with a heap of fun activities.

In January and April see what weird, wonderful, wacky themes we come up with.
