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.

Learn more about the program.

Missing Chapter Book Club

Be a part of a book club with a difference! Each reader gets a book with a twist - the final pages are sealed off! At Club meetings, there will be trivia and conversation around how club readers would end the story, and then find out the author's take.

Venue: Gordon Library

Time: 4pm – 5pm

Age: Primary school children aged 9 to 11 years

A library membership is required for participation. To register your interest in joining, please call 9424 0116 or 9424 0106 or email younglibrary@kmc.nsw.gov.au.
