Dare to Explore @ Central City Library

Who says that libraries and water don’t mix – not us! Come along and join us for a fun session with water balloons – clean fun for the whole family.

Have you ever wondered what games people played before we had computers and console games – this is your chance to find out! We are planning to share some old favourites with you in a fun and festive session for children of all ages.

As this is an outdoor activity please remember to slip, slop, slap and wrap (t-shirt, sunscreen, hat, and sunglasses). We highly recommend that you bring a towel and a change of clothes.

Challenge Buster! the Game Zone
Taking part in this activity will help you complete one of your Dare to Explore challenges!
Invent a new balloon (or water-balloon) sport and hold a balloon Olympics.

Aimed at children aged 5 - 13 years and their families.

If you would like to bring a group to this event then please email Erika for more information

Please note that children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver.

Children aged 5 to 13 years can sign up for Auckland Libraries’ free summer reading adventure online and in library branches from Monday 8 December.

Dare to Explore is about reading every day (even if it’s just a little bit) and completing up to 60 fun new challenges – see how many you can do, or set your own challenges! You can collect six different explorer stickers as you go.

Come along to the library for special holiday events and activities, or to share what you’re reading, creating and discovering. When you finish at least four challenges, you’ll be invited to a celebration party at the end of the summer holidays!

Once you’ve signed up, pick up your ‘passport’ at your local library and you’re ready to go!
The countdown is on for Dare to Explore 2014... to infinity, and beyond!
