School Holiday Programs and Events
Gladstone Regional Libraries has plenty of school holiday activities for all ages.
There are craft packs to take and make, a library hunt, craft workshops, movies, and technology classes. There’s bound to be something for you, or your children, to enjoy!
During the School Holiday period (while stocks last) collect a craft pack from your local library and go to our Facebook live demonstration to get crafty. Craft Pack stock is limited so be sure to come in early!
Packs are free and available at all Gladstone Regional Libraries branches. You must borrow on the day to receive a pack. (One pack per child.)
A live instructional video will be shown on the Library Facebook Page on the Wednesday or can be viewed afterwards on our CraftTime Online page
Fostering a love of creativity and imagination, the library offers a range of craft activities each holiday period. Sessions range from free-for-all make it and take it (home), to guided activities to learn a new skill/art or craft.
Learn how to finger knit, do drag painting, big box craft, paper pots and grass heads, just to name a few previous activities. Check each session for details as some require bookings. Children under 12 will need a parent/guardian present for the activity.
