Dance and sing with The Moon and Farmer McPhee

To celebrate the release of Margaret Mahy and David Elliot’s beautiful new book,  The Moon and Farmer McPhee, we are having a special farm themed Storytime this Thursday, 25 November at Central Library from 10:30-11am.

Come along for stories, rhymes, music and a chance to win a copy of the book.

It’s all Pandemonium at Central Library

If you thought our renovations in Central library were pandemonium wait until you see who we have in Central Library this Sunday.  The fabulous Christchurch percussion group, Pandemonium, are going to join us in the Centre for the Child for a musical spectacular, especially for families, to celebrate NZ Music Month. 

You can bring the whole family for this interactive Junk Jam concert where you can listen to Pandemonium perform some weird and wonderful music on their recycled instruments and then you can have the chance to join them in bashing and clanking some junk.  They supply all the instruments and will teach you how to use them so you can help create a musical masterpiece and try to bring down the library roof.

This is a free event so just come down to the Centre for the Child in Central Library, this Sunday 23 May from 2-3pm.
