Western Downs Libraries' big event of the year is just around the corner! 

 Whether you're into science, art, robotics, virtual reality, augmented reality, or just looking to find your next great hobby, Fun Palaces is the event for you. This isn't another boring workshop, it's a day for experience, discovery and sharing in learning. There will be interactive activities for the whole family - come along, get hands-on and have a go! 

There will be four Fun Palaces events throughout September and October, kicking off with Tara 24 September, followed by Chinchilla on 8 October, and finishing with Dalby and Miles on 22 October. Follow us on Facebook to stay up to date. 

Everyone a Scientist, Everyone an Artist!
