Holiday Mania

Great September holiday fun at Glen Eira Libraries! We have free and ticketed events for children to enjoy.

Workshops have limited numbers and age requirements. Tickets on sale online on Monday 4 September, 7am. For ticketed workshops only children participating require a ticket. Adults DO NOT require a ticket. There are no refunds on tickets. 

Children are not to be left unattended with the exception of the drumming workshop, the creative writing workshop, and the paper flowers and butterfly making workshop. For those sessions children must be signed in and out by a parent or guardian.  Art and craft workshops can be messy, so please dress children in appropriate clothing.

Take at look at other Glen Eira City Council school holiday programs: Arts and Culture and Youth Services events for teens.
