School holiday fun
Libraries deliver boredom busters
Children and teens in the City of Logan will be able to sing, dance, laugh and learn with Logan Libraries free school holiday program.
The June-July school holiday activities will include a mix of in-person and online activities such as Minecraft pirate maps and ships with STEM Punks, guitar workshop for beginners for children and teens, school holiday craft and LEGO robotics.
City Lifestyle Chair, Councillor Laurie Koranski said once again Logan Libraries was delivering a fun-filled program for local children and teens.
“There is no need to be bored in the City of Logan these school holidays as there is something organised for all ages and interests,” Cr Koranski said.
“I encourage families to explore the full program and get in quickly and book into anything that interests them as our holiday programs are always heavily in demand.”
Popular local entertainers and authors will part of the program.
Best-selling author Deano Yipadee will present his World’s Greatest School Holiday Show at Logan West, Jimboomba, Logan Village, Beenleigh, Logan Hyperdome and Logan North libraries.
Participants can laugh, sing and read along during the hilarious comedy live-music adventure with Deano’s collection of best-selling books Nee Naw the Little Fire Engine and Stink-o-saurus.
