School Holiday Fun

From craft activities, drawing and games to bookclubs, storytelling and group art projects, the Mandurah Libraries are a great place to spend your school holidays! So join us for some fun and games with your friends at the libraries.

A schedule of planned activities is available now, so check the library branches or newspapers or download them here:
Mandurah Library School Holiday Activities and Falcon eLibrary and Community Centre School Holiday Activities.

Be sure to book your child's spot as places are limited. All activities are FREE!

For more information, please contact any of our friendly library staff.

Included these holidays are three story-time sessions for older children to link in with a show presented at the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre. 

We invite you to
attend one of three continuous readings
Tim Winton's novel

If you don't know the story or would just like to hear it again, why not join us and listen to one of Winton's most personal and quintessentially Western Australian Stories. Blueback depicts the life of a young boy Abel and his mother, their relationship with the environment, and their desire to protect and preserve the natural habitat of the place they call home.

The reading sessions are on:
  • Tuesday 10th April at 1pm at Falcon eLibrary and Community Centre,
  • Thursday 12th April at 1pm at Mandurah Library, and
  • Monday 16th April at 10am at Mandurah Performing Arts Centre.
No need to book, just come along.  Suitable for ages 5 plus and adults are welcome too.  There will be plenty of breaks and we estimate the reading will take approximately one and a half hours.  Children will be able to work on a craft activity while they listen to the story.

Then don't miss Peta Murray's stage adaptation of Blueback at the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre from Wed 18th to Saturday 21st April.

This show is a mesmerising experience full of underwater imagery and exquisite puppetry. Beautifully crafted puppets of crabs, eels, abalone and coral create images of an underwater garden. This is a visual and an emotional journey through a stunning landscape, a fable for all ages that reminds us of why we live in one of the most beautiful places in the world.
