Magical mayhem on offer at libraries these school holidays
  • Saturday 29 March 2008

A magical journey of discovery awaits young people these school holidays as Sunshine Coast Libraries gears up to present its inaugural combined holiday program.

Magical Mayhem promises to intrigue, entertain and mystify young people across the coast as it weaves its web of magic from Monday 7 April to Friday 11 April at your local library.

Featuring a host of exciting activities, from puppetry, potions and possums, the holiday program offers a range of engaging and stimulating activities for all ages. There’s even a magical quiz.

Sunshine Coast Regional Council Community Services Regional Director Lisbet Dean said the Sunshine Coast Libraries, with nine branches and three mobile branches, offers residents an impressive selection of items, boasting over half a million items.

“As one of the most used public facilities operated by Council, our libraries are a great place to discover all the latest works of fact and fiction, as well as a range of music, audio books, movies and other titles,” Ms Dean said.

“The new integrated catalogue means members can more easily access all the latest materials held at the libraries.”

Ms Dean said the Maroochy and Noosa catalogues are already integrated into a single database, with Caloundra information coming online in the next couple of months.
