Play and Discover these October School Holidays.

We are delighted to host the award winning super-uber talented illustrator Donovan Bixley on Thursday 13 October at Central Library. This will be a fun family event with Donovan reading from his books and sharing his best drawing tips and ideas for budding artists. PLUS, be the first in the world to get your paws on Donovan's brand new full colour Flying Furballs annual/comic book 'Take-Off!'

At Central we also celebrate International Space Week (October 4-10) with a new Beanstack reading challenge - Look Up! Explore our Universe - The James Webb Space Telescope Challenge (NASA) which will run throughout the holidays and beyond. This challenge starts on 1 October.
