Creator Club

Looking for a space to make, play, and be an ‘out of the box’ thinker? Creator Club is for primary school aged children.  

The challenges set for each club will rotate across the four Ku-ring-gai Library locations, so if you feel like bettering your designs, you are welcome to drop in and participate at more than one location.
