First 5 Forever Programs

• Playtime @ the library

Bundaberg Library

We provide the resources so you can have fun with your kids!

Play is vital to your child’s development (and lots of fun) so it is our pleasure to create a special play space suitable for children under 6 years of age.

You and your child will have access to play and special library collection items during this self-guided session. As it is guided by you and your child you are welcome to drop in anytime between 9.30am and 11am.  Parents and carers are encouraged to help their child play with the items supplied.

Please note: Library staff will be there to answer questions and discuss the resources supplied but will not be providing supervision.

Proudly funded and supported by the Queensland Government and the State Library of Queensland.
