Summer School Holiday Activities

Website Toby Lid Angel.jpg

Toby would like to invite all his friends to the libraries for some fun filled school holiday activities. Play a ukulele, meet some local wildlife, yell out 'BINGO! 'or join the Dungeons and Dragons quest.

If you're looking for something more adventurous, meet some native animals or join the scavenger hunt from Bankstown and Padstow libraries and solve the clues to be in the running for a prize.
