It has been a busy couple of months at the library. In March we launched Kiama Conversation Hour - a new series of short talks - with an entertaining evening with author and comedian Jessica Dettmann at the Sebel.

In the school holidays the library was packed with kids creating robot art, making colourful Easter craft, folding a thousand origami paper cranes, and teaming up with friends to build LEGO and Minecraft creations.

The month of May promises to be just as exciting, with the launch of our new RoboClub for kids, HSC tutorials, Birds in the Backyard talk, and an exhibition about the life and art of May Gibbs.
