School's out and there is time to play and explore. At Unley Libraries, the school holidays are a bustling time as our Youth And Children's team launch their school holiday program. Usually based on an exciting theme each holidays, we invite performers, provide activities, and have some great fun.

And this is the place where you can book online prior to each set of holidays.

Unley Libraries School Holiday Program is taking literacy, creativity and technology beyond the library walls! We'll be adventuring with young people across our Unley community spaces.

Come and join us on a fun-filled holiday program linking with the National Summer Reading Program theme of ‘choose your own adventure’.
