Summer has arrived and we can hopefully look forward to long hours of sunshine and fun.

There are plenty of great activities at Libraries Tasmania for your children to enjoy during the break. Libraries Tasmania’s summer school holiday program is free and open to all children at their local library. Find activities at your local library on Eventbrite.

If you’re in southern Tasmania, the Southern Libraries School Holiday program will be available mid-December. Keep an eye on statewide activities for kids on Eventbrite. Please make sure to book, as demand is high.  

Keep the kids curious!

Did you know your children can have their own library membership? Through their membership they will have access to Story Box LibraryeBooks and eAudiobooks as well as great homework resources like the Britannica Library.

Visit your local library and sign them up today.

Wondering how to keep your children reading during the holidays?

All Tasmanian Government school students can now borrow a wide range of eBooks for free through the Sora app.

Students can access eBooks, magazines, and graphic novels using the Sora app on their device. Items are specially selected and age appropriate for students from Prep to Year 12. Library membership is not required.

If you need help getting started, speak to your child’s teacher or school library staff member.

Download the Sora app and visit our website for more information.

Not at a government school?

If your child goes to an independent or catholic school your child can access thousands of items in our eLibrary via the Libby App by using their Libraries Tasmania membership.

Go to eLibrary books and audiobooks to navigate to the Libby App, where you can sign up today.
