Last week the theme for Crafty Creations at the Gunnedah Shire Library School Holiday Program was dragons, and this week it is cats.
Children can come along and construct their own cats on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons from 3.30pm to 4.30pm.
They can also add to the enormous dragon going up along the side wall of the library by decorating paper plate scales.
Call the library for to reserve your spot on 6740 2190. There’s also a small charge of $3 per child.
Youngsters up to seven years can come along to Toddler Time in the mornings from 10.30am to 11am.
They will enjoy some cat stories and can make a simple handicraft to take home with them.
No bookings are required for the free morning sessions. Come along and enjoy.
