Many events may be cancelled this Spring but the team at Casey Cardinia Libraries (CCL) will be doing their absolute best to keep local children entertained through the school holidays.
Through the coronavirus pandemic, CCL has provided a number of virtual events and activities, as well as a contactless delivery service.
To keep everyone engaged and entertained, two special What’s On in Spring guides have been launched, one for adults and one for children – including a school holiday program.
There are more than 50 free online events on offer, all hosted online via Zoom, Facebook or YouTube.
“It is Spring – a time of renewal and growth,” CCL CEO Chris Buckingham said.
“By reading, learning and actively participating in community, we are making a conscious decision to face down the challenges and determine our own future.
“Spring is a time to try something new, take a risk, or two, and set a different agenda.”
For the adults there is job search support, help for parents teaching kids at home, conversation clubs, pilates, U3A events, chats with authors, armchair travel, support for parents, local history, family law guidance, bee keeping, and a trivia night just to get started.
For the kids there is stop motion, pirate day, LOTE events, dinovember events, bees, booking classes, NAIDOC events, Sinhalese story time and craft, writing and drawing workshops, Halloween events, competitions and more.
“CCL are here to help you discover the possibilities and in turn open the door for a new approach,” Mr Buckingham added.
“We cannot wait to see you again in one of our libraries, but until then we are determined to walk with you through these troubled times.
“We will get to a better place together.”
