What's On


​​April ANZAC School Holiday Programme

​Central Otago Libraries invite you to come along and join in some activities to commemorate our ANZACs.

This year commemorates the evacuations of the ANZACs as the war comes to a close. Make your own boat to escape over water, or horses to leave over land. Spy on your enemies with a periscope, or send a secret message with our special decoders!

Bookings are essential. Contact your local library to secure your spot!
