Great news for Albany Creek Library regulars and those who are looking for holiday activities for their kids. Albany Creek Library will kick off their spring holiday classes starting Monday, the 18th of September. The library will be hosting different programs that will match children’s ages, interests, skills, and maturity levels.

Do note that these programs are free for library members only. Becoming a member should be a breeze because joining the library only requires one valid ID with your current address. Registration is free and open for all ages. Join the library here.

 

Program Registrations

Bookings are required because slots are limited. You can book a class by visiting or calling the Albany Creek Library. However, the easiest way to book is through online registration. It will save you from the inconvenience of being held up in the queue. You can pre-register via Eventbrite by logging in or signing up for an account. Online registration perks include receiving booking information and event reminders.

Should the programs reach the booking capacity, you can still register your children for the program and their names will be added on the waitlist. However, this does not guarantee a slot. If a ticket becomes available, the library will contact the names on the waitlist and give information on how to officially register for the event.

Here are some of the holiday programs and activities in Albany Creek Library that you might want to check out. Children under 12 years of age are required to have a guardian throughout the class.
