 Activities for Children

​We hope you enjoy the programs on offer at the Ruth Faulkner Library during this transitionary period. The Ruth Faulkner Library is undertaking a staged move to new facilities and will be offering an exciting new range of programming for all ages after relocating.​
​​Special Ticketed Events For Children

The Library runs special ticketed sessions for children on a regular basis, along with school holiday programs and one-off workshops. Children's programs are designed to spark curiosity, engage children socially, and to foster a life-long love of learning. 

Please note:
To enable a safe and enjoyable experience at our library events, children under 12 years of age must be supervised at all times by a parent, guardian or carer.
