Join us at Taupō Public Library for some awesome holiday activities.

Monday 1 October: 10.30am Big Shake Out Launch!
ShakeOut is held across the world to remind people of the right action to take during a civil defence emergency. To get us into the swing of things, Stan the giant dog will be making a special appearance at the library to promote Taupo’s own ShakeOut, with fun activities, drills and a whole lot more! (All ages; adult supervision required)

Tuesday 2 October: 10.30am Survival Stories and Scavenger Hunt
Continuing with our theme of survival, join Kev as he recounts remarkable stories of human survival, including his own! Afterwards, get out into the library for a Bear Grylls scavenger hunt – where will he be hiding... or hanging?

Wednesday 3 October: Lego Sessions- How Will You Survive The Zombie Apocalypse
Two Sessions Available - 10:30am or 2:30pm (Ages 7+; adult supervision required).

Thanks to Pakeke Lions and a private donation of Lego, Taupō Library is excited to bring lego challenges back to our school holiday programme. To kick off, we will present you with a thrilling scenario from which you will create a lego masterpiece.

Thursday 4 October: 10.30am Calligraphy Workshop
Calligraphy or ‘beautiful writing’ spans thousands of years and countless cultures. Join Lesley at the library to discover the art of calligraphy and take home your own handcrafted card or bookmark. You’ll have to be quick to book your spot as spaces are very limited!
