Hobsons Bay Libraries is back with another action-packed school holiday program!

These holidays we’re pleased to be able to welcome you back into our library branches for the return of face-to-face programs. We’ll also be running some online events for those that prefer to join in the fun from home.

We’re taking steps to help us keep COVID-Safe, including reducing numbers at our face-to-face events. Places for each session are limited to help us stay socially distanced, and so bookings are essential. We recommend getting in early to avoid disappointment.

If your chosen event is fully booked, please join the waiting list and we will contact you if a place becomes available.
