Holiday Programmes

School Holidays

All three libraries hold programmes of stories, crafts and entertainment during school holidays.

We'll soon be running the July School Holiday Programme. Have a look and see what you like!

Junior Members & Kidz Cards

Children under 16 years have a Junior membership.

A parent or caregiver fills in the online registration form, at home or in the library. To complete the registration process, visit the circulation desk with ID for the caregiver (a driver's licence or passport) and proof of address (e.g., a bill or bank statement).

Children's cards are issued for their personal use.

Junior items on a child's card are eligible for junior overdue charges. Some junior items have rental charges, e.g. Children's DVDs & CDs.

A junior item taken out on an adult card is eligible for adult overdue charges.

Databases for Research and Fun

From homework help, through secondary school and tertiary level, to adult general interest, to health topics, law, funding, scholarships, our databases provide access to a huge range of online resources, on just about every topic

From home you can information and have fun while learning.

Most are available to use from home - use your library card number for login ID.
