FREE ACTIVITIES FOR YOUNG EXPLORERS THIS HOLIDAYS!
Visit Macquarie Regional Library these July school holidays to
enjoy a great range of activities for curious kids. The library’s Explore
school holiday program launches on Monday, 4 July, with activities for
children aged 5-12 continuing until Saturday, 16 July.
Macquarie Regional Library Manager, Kathryn McAlister said, the
library is a great place for kids all year around but especially during the
holidays. “The library has a fantastic range
of school holiday activities, with programs for children to enjoy at all of our
library branches. So while you’re visiting, don’t forget to stock up on
books, DVDs, audiobooks, CDs and magazines to keep you entertained at home
during the holiday period.”
Among the programs on offer are Fantastic Fossils, a
hands-on activity where participants can delve into how fossils are created by
making their fossil impressions using modelling clay. Budding
archaeologists will also have the chance to go on a dig for chocolate chips at
Wellington Library’s Cookie Excavation session.
Young nature enthusiasts will enjoy the Under the Sea sessions,
where they can explore some of the extraordinary creatures that exist beneath
the waves through ocean-themed crafts.
Dubbo and Wellington families will also have the opportunity to
explore Aboriginal culture with Wiradjuri author and storyteller Uncle Larry
Brandy at Storytime on Wednesday, 6 July, as part of NAIDOC Week.
