What’s On at the Library
From First Five Forever sessions to Maker Moments and Adult Programs, explore our calendar of events to find out what’s on at your local library branch!
The LOTE collection across the region is routinely renewed. This time around we spotted a few of our favourites… Cannonvale Library currently holds Spanish, German, Dutch, Korean junior items and Korean and Hungarian adult items while Bowen Library hold Tamil adult fiction items. Please contact your local branch if you have any queries.
Is your child creative? Do they like to build? Are they interested in robotics? Come along to Makerspace at Bowen, Cannonvale and Proserpine Libraries and join in with fun activities to develop these skills and more. Cannonvale Library also offers Mini Makers for children aged 5 and under to help little ones experience the world of making too.
Hoopla are excited to launch five additions to their BingePass collection, each featuring educational content for children. These new BingePasses focus on reading, STEAM, language learning, and more! For just one borrow, you will have access to an entire library of videos for seven days.
Set your child up for success! It's important to foster an early love of books and reading in your child's life. By signing them up for their very own library card, you can help them feel confident and comfortable in the library space. A library card opens new worlds to your child, so pop into your local library today!
Children’s library programs are back for 2023! Join us for Baby Bounce, Little Library Play and Story Time and share songs, stories and activities with your little ones. The most important time for a child’s brain development is in their first five years. Talking, singing, reading and playing with your child is fun, and helps little brains to grow!
Whitsunday Regional Libraries participated in the Kids on Tour Program with resources supplied by the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA)> With the recent torrential rain and flooding in the region we were able to bring these resources to the Bowen PCYC which was set up as a place of refuge for stranded travellers, providing an enjoyable diversion for the children staying there.
Have you visited one of our PCYC Library Stations yet? These spaces are especially for families to connect and engage, with resources including books, toys and community information.
