If youre looking for somewhere cool to take the kids this summer, the Lismore Library is offering free activities for all ages during the month of January.

As part of the Summer Fun program children can enjoy everything from storytelling to board games and comic art workshops.

Lismore Library storyteller Mary Tyson said its a great way to get kids off the computer and interacting while having fun.

For kids who dont have siblings its a chance to play with other children, and theres access to a huge variety of games, some of which they may not have at home, said Mary. Were happy to spend time with the children, and the older kids can play the games while younger ones attend story time. It also gives parents the opportunity to enjoy a bit of quiet time.

The Summer Fun program features story time with Mary, where 2-5-year-olds get to hear a magical tale, join in sing-a-longs and try out craft activities. It starts on Wednesday, January 10, and runs every Wednesday and Thursday from 10.30-11.30am.

For older children, a Games Morning is held every Wednesday and Thursday from 10.30am-12pm. Suitable for ages five to 105, visitors can choose from a huge range including Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, Cluedo and Connect Four.

Back by popular demand this year is Brian the Magician, who will delight kids with his amazing tricks during two shows on January 19 and 23. The shows are suitable for all ages and bookings are required.

Mark Richards will also be conducting Comic Art Workshops on Tuesday, January 16, from 10.30am-12pm and 2-3.30pm. These workshops are aimed at primary school children, however, there is a special session for adults and high school students on Monday, January 15, from 2-3.30pm. Places are filling fast, so book now to secure a spot.
