    For The Kids

    Information about services offered for Children, including Storytime and School Holiday activities



    Story Time

    Storytime is held every Friday from 10.30am to 11.30am at the Burdekin Library.
    Storytime is perfect for children aged 0-5 years, but all are welcome. Each week we read stories, sing songs and rhymes, and participate in craft on a particular theme.
    There is no Storytime during school holidays.

    School Holiday Program

    In partnership with the PCYC, we provide activities to school-aged children every single day of the school holidays. Activities often include crafts, games, fitness, movies and anything fun we can think of – check with the library or PCYC for the list of events close to the holidays.

    Wink and Blink

    Every school holidays we create two activity booklets for children to take free of charge. Wink is the booklet for younger children and Blink is for older school aged children. The booklets are available from the weekend that holidays start and can be collected from the front desk at both the Ayr and Home Hill Libraries.

    Fun in the Library

    The Burdekin Library is home to several iPads and tablets for patrons to use in the library, providing they have their membership card. Children are also able to play the Wii with a whole range of games available.
