Children's Programmes

Our regular children's programmes are scheduled to take place during primary school term time and are listed below. Check the What's On calendar to find out what's happening and when at your local branch.

Preschool Storytime is a fun and entertaining way for children aged 3-5 to fall in love with books. Often including a craft, this programme brings stories to life and makes library visits a way of life!

Wriggle & Rhyme is a music and movement based programme for children aged 0-2 delivered in partnership with Sport Otago. Wriggle & Rhyme is a fun and relaxing environment to enjoy music with your baby, help them develop early literacy skills, and meet other parents.


Reading to Dogs is delivered by Outreach Therapy Pets and supported by St John New Zealand, and provides a calm, vetted and furry pooch for children who may like to practice their reading to a non-judgemental, canine audience.

LEGO® Club builds creativity! Our librarians have different styles and offer challenges or imaginative free play. One thing is for sure, children love this programme! LEGO® Club is for children aged 5-12

Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Maths! STEAM Club is a great hands-on programme which nurtures inquiry, problem solving, and a passion for learning. Sessions are designed for ages 8-12.
