There's lots going on down at your local library during the Summer Holidays to keep your children occupied with our programme of craft activities and events.

It's summertime (hurrah!) and we know the school holidays can often be long, boring and expensive!

Join us across our branches this summer for a fantastic range of exciting FREE children's activities. From creative crafts to Bookbug parties and outdoor activities there's something for everyone at WDC Libraries.  

Places should be booked in the library where the event is taking place no more than two weeks prior to the activity in order to ensure everyone gets the opportunity to get involved.

We also have Outdoor Bookbug sessions, there's no need to book a place on these sessions just pop along and join in the fun.
