Library Events and Activities For Kids - Eastern Suburbs

  • Kids
    Mums & Bubs
    Preschoolers

We love a trip to a Children’s Library anytime! There are computers, DVDs to borrow and books, books, books! We curl up on the floor on one of the big cushions and read to our hearts content. Many libraries also have toys and fun interactive exhibitions. Best of all are the FREE story times!
