Holiday magic for kids at Clarence Valley libraries

THE January holiday season is off to a busy start at Clarence Valley libraries with more than 25 kids turning up to create a "lost world" at Grafton Library on Wednesday.

The Summer Reading Club is on again and children are encouraged to read anything they can find that relates to the theme "Lost Worlds".

Minecraft Coding is booked out at Grafton Library but there are places left at Maclean Library this holidays and it will run again after Easter.

Participants will use scripting/coding to perform simple tasks within Minecraft, including programming a robot to move around and mine blocks.

Local artist Louise Kirby will run Book Art sessions at Grafton, Yamba and Iluka libraries.

Inspired to reuse old books, Kirby will help participants create works of art to take home.

Wooli and Glenreagh kids can visit the mobile library to make rubbings. Using a range of templates, children can create their own artworks with a variety of "lost world" themes.
