​​​​Our libraries have a great range of activities, events and services available to benefit everyone. These include educational services, fun events and everything in between. ​

What's on for children and young people?

  • Summer ​Reading Club
    The Summer Reading Club is an annual, themed Reading Club which encourages children to read over the Summer Holidays.

  • Book Week
    Book Week also takes place annually; as a national initiative every August. Its aims are to promote children's interest in reading.

  • World Book Online
    World Book Online is great for 'expanding inquisitive minds', and encourages children to question – and research – the things around them.

  • National Simultaneous Storytime
    Every year the library participates in National Simultaneous Storytime, where we conduct fun Storytime and activities. It aims to encourage more young Australians to read and enjoy books.

  • School Holiday Activities
    School Holidays Activities are held across our libraries, encouraging children to get together for activities and fames

  • After School Fun
    After School Fun allows children to get creative in libraries after school. One great example is the 'Legotastic Club' at Greenacre Library for children aged 8-14. Every Monday during term time, they meet for 30 minutes at 4.30pm. They come from all abilities – but they leave as masters of LEGO! There are also activities at other libraries, for example at Chester Hill Library and Knowledge Centre, on Wednesday afternoons from 3.30pm ​
