We had a terrific time during the April School Holidays!

There was something special for everyone during the holidays!   Plus there were creepy crawlies in every nook and cranny and an infestation of writing bugs at Port Macquarie Library.  Participants left our libraries  with either bug brooches, beautiful butterflies, bug collages, a headful of bug information and a truck load of scary stories. 

As well, we celebrated the 4th Cosplay event with a parade of amazing costumes with great manga artworks on show plus Japanese craft & sushi to share. 

The holidays at our libraries saw young writers, artists, scientists, storytellers and Cosplayers in action.  Thank you to all who took part in activities and helped celebrate the National Year of Reading in such a special way!

Please check the library website for July School Holidays schedule two weeks prior to the holidays.  Book early to avoid disappointment.

Check our photos from the April school holidays!
