Matariki Rocks

Get creative with rock painting

Wednesday 8 July 10:30am

We have the pleasure of Kirsty from Kids Unlimited coming in and doing a rock painting activity with us.

All you need to bring in is yourself, your Matariki imagination and we will provide the rocks and paints for you to create your own special rock. You could even hide them around the local area for others to find and enjoy.

Recycling Games & Craft

Are you interested in helping care for the environment?

It is plastic free month in July... Join us at Whangaparāoa Library and learn more about how to recycle and why.

We are lucky to have Betsy from Hibiscus Cost Zero Waste share her wealth of knowledge.

Come and join us for a fun and interactive session on how we recycle and why. Make a glass recycling bag that you can take home and use.

Are there any stars in your family?

Research your genealogy with our experts

Tuesday 7 July 10:00am

Have you and your children always wanted to find out about your family's history? During the July school holidays our wonderful Hibiscus Coast genealogy group are running a session specifically for children (10yrs+).

Bookings are essential with limited spaces available; book at the desk with one of our librarians.

Children must have an adult with them that will know names of relatives in their family. Bring your own device if you have one.

Please cancel if you cannot make it to free up space.
