Lots to do at your libraries this December! From school holiday activities to book launches, Christmas events and Storytime, there's something for everyone. 

The library is the best place to be these school holidays. Spend some time in the air conditioning and catch up on some reading, play the Xbox, WII or PlayStation or let little ones make friends while they look at picture books. Jump on a computer, use our WiFi, or check out our Apps such as BorrowBox and RBdigital. While you are on our website take a look at TumbleBooks for Kids and introduce your children to reading on a tablet or smartphone.

The library just may be the trendiest place to be these school holidays and it's free.
