Cessnock City Library and Kurri Kurri Library have an exciting range of activities planned for the upcoming school holidays.

A highlight will be a workshop presented by Emma Best from Newcastle Museum.  

Touch fur, feathers and scales! The hands-on educational workshop involves interaction with real stuffed Australian native animals.  

Participants will be able to download a face-swapping app and take a selfie with their favourite Australian animal.  

Local young inventors will have the opportunity to turn their ideas into reality and build a Rube Goldberg machine.  

Students will explore scientific principles through building whacky contraptions out of everyday objects to perform a simple task. Those who have seen Wallace and Gromit will have a good understanding of what an exciting and fun day it will be.  

NAIDOC week celebrations are planned for both libraries, including Aboriginal Art and Basket Weaving workshops, as well as sharing Dreamtime stories.  

The great annual Cessnock City Library Lego brick building competition is on again and this year is about recreating your favourite story or song in bricks.  

You’ve got to be in it to win it! Pick up an entry form, put your thinking cap on and join in the fun these holidays!
