Our Libraries are hosting a huge school holiday program this summer and the theme is ‘Monster Madness!’.
The aim is to expose children in the community to the exciting world of fantasy and allow them to explore all things whimsical. Through a variety of events and activities, children will be encouraged to use their imagination and flex their creative muscles.
Creative play is important for developing critical thinking skills, and encourages experimentation and ‘thinking outside the box’. There will be sessions both in the library and some to try at home, including a monster drawing workshop, a monster mash hip-hop dance class and a monster movie morning.
For the full program, pop into your local City of PAE Library and pick up a copy of the monster three-week program from our friendly staff, or visit our website.

Monster Reading Challenge
How many books can you read?
We challenge you to further explore the exciting world of monsters by reading up to 30 books over the holiday period during our Monster Reading Challenge!
If your family is currently participating in our 1001 Books Before School challenge (for children up to five years), you may be familiar with the Beanstack app which is used to track challenge progress. The Monster Reading Challenge will also be available on Beanstack, and there will be virtual badges to collect along the way.
Kids who complete the challenge are invited to submit a book review or picture inspired by their reading adventures which will enter them in the draw to win a special monster prize.

Updating Library facilities
Making our great libraries even greater
As part of our ongoing commitment to provide high quality public amenities across PAE, we are making some improvements to the public toilets at Semaphore, Enfield and Port Adelaide Libraries.
The improvements include facilities which are lighter, brighter and more energy efficient, and COVID Safe (fitted with sensor taps and soap dispensers).
As a result, some Libraries will need to close temporarily:
Closing Mon 16 Nov and opening Mon 21 Dec
Closing Mon 16 Nov and opening Mon 14 Dec
Enfield Library will host a Pop-up Library at the back of the building. A JP service will operate from Port Adelaide Library on Thursdays, 6.45-7.45pm.
