Stories and playing at the Margaret Mahy Playground? Perfect! This summertime – starting tomorrow Thursday 1 December – our Mobile Library will be visiting the Margaret Mahy playground on Thursday mornings. The van will be parked by the main entrance from 9am to 11.45am.
You can borrow books from the van as well as enjoy a Storytimes session at 10am and 11am. Check out our timetable: The van will be there regardless of the weather – if it’s bad, we can do Storytimes inside! ^Donna
