Dive 'Under the Sea' at GV Libraries

Goulburn Valley Libraries will be taking a dive ‘Under the Sea’ these school holidays.

There is a variety of craft activities on offer at libraries in Strathbogie Shire throughout the holidays. The whole family can enjoy crafting some spectacular sea creatures. Pick up an activity program at your local Goulburn Valley Library or go to to take a look.

You can also grab the very popular #TakeHome craft packs which have returned to encourage a bit of creativity these school holidays. Inside every pack are four different ‘Under the Sea’ themed crafts to take and make. Each pack includes templates and instructions. These activities are great for all ages and can easily be made by younger children with a little bit of grown-up help. If you have crayons, pencils, or textas, as well as glue and some scissors, you have all you need to complete all 4 crafts.

You can pick up your craft packs at all of branch libraries and the Mobile Library during opening hours from Friday 8 April until Saturday 23 April. Templates will also be available to download and print on our website

Strathbogie Shire Council Mayor Cr Laura Binks encouraged local families to take advantage of Goulburn Valley Libraries’ awesome ‘Under the Sea’ school holiday program.

“Through our partnership with GV Libraries, the Shire has fantastic facilities in Euroa, Nagambie and Violet Town where the program will be running these holidays," Cr Binks said.

“There are also take home craft packs with four activities to complete over the holiday period so be sure to check out the booking details and secure your spot today.”

There is also a very special ‘Meet Up with the Mobile Library” series of visits scheduled during the holidays.
