Children’s holiday activities in our libraries
South Gloucestershire’s libraries have lots of fun activities for children and families over school holidays. It’s free to come along to our activities and new faces are always very welcome. Children must bring a grown-up with them.
All activities are most suitable for primary school aged children. We look forward to seeing you there!
