Strathfield Libraries run fun-filled programs for all ages, providing a happy and relaxed learning experience for you and your child. Due to the popularity of these programs, each activity is ticketed. Please collect a ticket from the front desk on the day of the activity. Spaces are limited.

There are a few guidelines to ensure that everyone enjoys the sessions.

  • Arrive on time so that you do not miss out on any of the fun and also so as not to interrupt the session.
  • Remain quiet during the sessions. Talking adults easily distract small children and make it difficult for the librarian to manage the group.
  • Listen and participate. Follow up activities at home, sing the songs, talk about the stories.
  • Sit with your child if he/she is just a toddler. They can easily be distracted and sometimes need encouragement to join in.
  • If children become too restless it is best to leave quietly and rejoin the group the following week.
