Relax and read with Libraries Tasmania!

What better way to unwind this summer than by relaxing with a great read? At Libraries Tasmania, we have plenty of activities, staff book recommendations, and read-anywhere eResources that you can chill out with.

For the kids

Our library staff have curated a great selection of summer reads for the kids and teens in your life. So, encourage them to borrow, place holds and start reading!

How about getting the kids to take part in our inaugural Summer Read Around program? They can 'Read Around Tasmania' for their chance to win a $50.00 book voucher!

And, of course, there's our annual school holiday program, with libraries offering fun activities such as: wool craft sessions (Bothwell Library), colouring-in spaces (Oatlands Library), hands-on STEM activities (Bridgewater Library), and 'make a bug hotel' or a fairy garden sessions (Smithton Library).

For more ideas on keeping the kids entertained – such as our much-loved Rock & Rhyme sessions – contact your local library for what's on – or keep an eye out on our Facebook page.
