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.
