Christmas Activities For Kids 2021

Christmas is almost upon us, and here at Cockburn Libraries there are lots of things happening for kids and families.

Letters to Santa @ Cockburn Libraries

We all know how very busy Santa gets at Christmastime, so Cockburn Libraries is helping by being a special collection point for children’s letters to Santa and sending his responses back to you.

You can be involved. pick up a Letter to Santa form at the library, write your letter, and pop it in Santa’s mailbox at your local branch.
Letters can be posted by children of all ages between 1-17 December to leave time for them to get to the North Pole and back to you for Christmas.

Remember – it’s very important to fill out your information on the front or Santa, his elves, and the library staff won’t know how to get your responses back to you.
