Libraries in Warkworth, Wellsford and Mahurangi East are running a range of activities for children during the school holidays, under the theme Survive 24.
There will be visits from firefighters, story times, art activities, a Zombie Apocalypse and more, and all activities are free. Award-winning author Des Hunt will be visiting Wellsford and Warkworth libraries to share his tips for writing a good survival story, which will include an interactive talk with fun chemistry and physics gadgets.
Mahurangi East Library will be working with the Warkworth Museum to showcase pioneer survival. This will be a chance to build a bushman’s shelter, make butter and do the washing. Senior librarian Heather Jackson says that children can also do competitions and activities in the library at any time.
