Summer holiday fun a breeze at libraries

Posted: 7am 29 Dec 2020

Moreton Bay Libraries have a swag of activities to keep everyone entertained across the school holidays.

Kick off 2021 with the inspiring Joy Connection program, with performances and workshops for all ages that are designed to make you feel good.

Get started on the book you’ve always wanted to write with online and in-person writing workshops for children and teens.

Teens can make stress balls and pick up tips for healthy thinking with workshops from headspace.

There are also take-home activity packs, or take on the challenge of the fairy tale-themed library hunt.

Bookings for January activities open Wednesday, December 30 at 11am.

Headspace

Summer reading club

The Summer Reading Club runs until January 31 and is aimed at library members aged 17 and under.

It encourages reading over the holidays, with weekly prize draws to win book vouchers.

Local schools can compete to win the Summer Reading Club trophy, presented to the school with the highest percentage of participants

Pop-up Play

Head to the Caboolture Library before January 15 to explore the first in a series of pop-up play installations across the Moreton Bay Region library network.

The play space will spend five weeks in each library and features different activities each week that explore a world of play, imagination and learning including sensory, physical, construction, pretend and creative play.

Pillowcase Project

The Pillowcase Project will visit select Moreton Bay Region libraries in January.

Workshop participants aged 8 and 9 will decorate a pillowcase to take home.

The pillowcases double as an emergency kit, teaching children what to put inside to be ready for storm season.

Sessions are free, but bookings are required.

Snake Boss Show

The Snake Boss show is back with Julie Baker, star of Animal Planet’s Snake Boss series.

The snake boss and her reptile show will visit Caboolture, Strathpine, North Lakes and Woodford Libraries.

The show is free, but you need to book.

Seven steps to a healthier headspace

Make stress balls and origami with Rochelle from headspace Caboolture at the Burpengary and Caboolture libraries.

The sessions, aimed at those aged 12-24, give tips for future-proofing your mind for 2021 - discover simple things you can do to be more resilient in the year ahead.

The sessions are at Burpengary Library on January 12, 2-4pm and Caboolture Library on January 19, 2-4pm.

Bookings required.

Joy Connection

Begin 2021 with positivity and joyful intent by experiencing live music in unexpected places, ukulele workshops, a capella and dance flash mobs.

Immerse yourself in storytelling, weaving, watercolours, talks and many more arts and culture activities for physical, emotional and human wellbeing.

Look out for activities in local libraries, galleries, museums and outdoor spaces around the region and help make joy contagious this January.
