Library school holiday program – it’s fun and it’s free

Media Statement from City of Albany

Albany Public Library’s free school holiday program is well under way, with lots of story-reading, craft activities and puzzle-making on the agenda.
The sessions will run for the next two weeks (subs: Jan 15-17 and Jan 22-24) from 10.30am to 11.30am each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
The free program is for primary school-aged children, and parents need to be on hand to help with activities if children are 10 and under.

kids to read for at least 15 minutes a day.
Children can register online at or at their local library.
Albany Public Library is holding another Summer Reading Challenge competition this year with prizes of books and vouchers for the winners.
Entry forms should be lodged at the library by February 18.
