The weather looks a little bleak but the school holiday program at Ōpōtiki Library is bright and bustling for the next two weeks.
The popular school holiday program is in action at the library again. The theme this term is ‘migration’, with birds and insects as the basis for many activities.
Ōpōtiki librarian, Jo Hunt said that the spring arrival of the shining cuckoo was the inspiration for many of the activities.
“We have our usual storytime slots but also bunting, paper mache, a ukulele festival, poi and making paper guys and girls. We have two sessions of special guests – the Travelling Tuatara are visiting for a whole day of fun and activities and we can’t wait. And Ruka Cameron and friends have also offered to come and share their special knowledge and skills to help us with rongoā /weaving. That is going to be an incredibly popular event with all ages so we encourage people to get here early to save a spot!” Ms Hunt said.
All events start at 10am each weekday over the two week school holiday period. You can pick up a flyer with all the details at the library.
