Over the September and October school holiday break, Sunshine Coast Council library branches will be overrun by superheroes and storybook characters joining in some totally awesome fun.

Community Programs Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay urged parents to circle Monday, September 14 in their diaries - that’s when bookings for Council’s September and October library holiday activities and events open.

“This year Master Builders and Bricks 4 Kids will be running four Superhero LEGO workshops to show children how to build their favourite heroes and matching worlds,” Cr McKay said.

“The libraries very own Geek Squad will be running stop-go animation workshops where children can create their own LEGO movie by using iPods and hundreds of pieces of LEGO.

“The plot just keeps getting bigger with children creating their own Superhero costumes with masks, capes, cuffs and shields. There are fairytale and gothic castles to construct, character boxes to make, rocket ships to colour in and puppets to build.

“And no story would be complete without a monster. There will be six Frankentoy sessions where children are tasked with unleashing their imagination and inner mad scientist to use deconstructed toys to create a new one.

“Younger children don’t miss out as there will be magical storytelling sessions with craft activities afterwards.

“The good news for mums and dads is all the holiday fun is free. Numbers are limited so make sure you book early to avoid disappointment.”
