Yarra Plenty Regional Library is proud to participate in Fun Palaces 2018. On Saturday 6 October all library branches will transform into Fun Palaces from 10.00am to 1.00pm. Drop by to make, learn and explore!
Fun Palaces celebrate the unique skills and passions of local people – run by, for and with the local community. Activities bring art, science, craft, tech, digital, heritage and sports – but above all PEOPLE – together, to CREATE, have FUN and build communities from the grassroots up!
