Baby Bounce is a free, four-week early literacy program at the library. Through songs and activities, 0 - 12 month old babies are introduced to the rhythm and sound of language.

Sessions require one lap per baby, so invite Mum, Dad, aunts or uncles for extra laps if you have twins or triplets.

Contact the library or check our Library Events page to find out when the next program is due to commence.

Interactive Sensory Wall

Sensory Wall

The Sensory Tactile Wall in the Children's Area of the library is popular with parents and children.

Parents can relax in a comfy chair with a book or magazine while the children experience the sights and sounds of the Tactile Wall.

Children can explore the mirrors, sheepskin secret pockets, balls, chains, tambourine, abacus and spinners. The wall even talks to you if you press the right button! It's a fun, tactile experience in a digital world.
