Scrabble tiles spelling GAME ON! on a colourful background with 8-bit game icons.

We've got a packed schedule for the school holidays! Come and make games, come and play games. We're doing everything from board games to role-playing games!

If gaming's not your thing, attend an art class and draw your favourite game character, join us to create an origami masterpiece, or come into Auaha Makerspace and create your very own candle so you can keep reading on these dark winter afternoons.

There will also be scavenger hunts and other activities at every library. See the full activity schedule below.
