Gosh, how fast has time flown? Did you realise that Term 2 is nearly over? This means it’s nearly School Holidays. Don't worry, your local library has free activities galore!

Primary school-aged activities


Wow, don't miss me!


Watch Me

Carp's School Holiday performances LAUGH OUT LOUD is a 45-minute show that is coming to three library branch locations. The Lalor Library session is booked out but there are still spots available at the Diamond Valley and Eltham shows.

Why pay to go to the cinema when our big screen is showing family movies for free?

There's also a Puppet Circus Show performed by puppeteer David Leach.


Make Me

Get hands-on with whatever craft takes your fancy. Perhaps:

STEAMDANCE workshops hosted by the Australian Ballet are back! There are 3 different sessions: for 5–7 years, 8–10 years, and 11–12 years.

Science and Technology


Drop in or take home

Can't commit to a day or time? We have drop-in activities, including:

See all Teen activities!

We are here to educate, entertain and excite children throughout the school holidays. There are events running everyday. Come and join us!

Some of the programs you may have to book (and are booking out fast!) so don't wait.
