Christmas at your library

MidCoast Council

Book your spot at a free Christmas decoration workshop, meet Santa at a Storytime party, and find out when we’re open during the Christmas/New Year break.

“Come along and learn how to make beautiful Christmas decorations from recycled materials,” said MidCoast Council’s Manager Libraries and Community Services, Alex Mills.

“The whole family can learn how to make a pinecone Christmas tree, ornaments, cards and gift bags.”

All materials are supplied. This one-hour workshop is suitable for young and old alike, including children aged five and over. Booking is essential.

Participating libraries include Forster on Monday 5 December at 3:30pm, Hallidays Point on Wednesday 21 December at 10:30am, Taree on Saturday 3 December at 10:30am, and Tea Gardens on Saturday 10 December at 9:30am.

“Storytime at your library will be extra special for Christmas. It will be more like a party, with music, dance, refreshments and a visit from Santa,” added Mr Mills.

Storytime is for pre-school children. There is no need to book, but please confirm times with the library before attending.

Christmas Storytimes are scheduled for Forster on Wednesday 14 December at 10:30am, Hallidays Point on Friday 9 December at 10:30am, Harrington on Thursday 8 December at 1:30pm, Stroud on Friday 16 December at 10:30am, Tea Gardens on Monday 5 December at 9:30am, and Taree on Thursday 15 December at 10:30am.

In Gloucester, bring the whole family along for a free screening of Polar Express on Thursday 22 December at 10am. Go on a magical adventure to the North Pole, as you learn about friendship, bravery, and the spirit of Christmas.
