Events and Programmes
Wriggle and Rhyme
Our Wriggle & Rhyme programme is a fun and free activity session for parents and children aged two years and under.
Wriggle & Rhyme provides positive movement experiences designed to stimulate the development of your child’s body and brain - building the foundations for pre-literacy and learning.
Sessions are held every Wednesday from 10.30am.
We provide a fun and free session for parents and children aged two to fives years.
Enjoy stories, songs, crafts and socialising at your local Library.
We invite you to come along, share a story, get crafty and move those happy feet.
Toddler Time is held every Friday from 10.30am.
Coffee and Cake Book Chat
Each month the Waitomo District Library Team hosts a Book Chat.
The group meets and discuss a wide variety of topics and books. Topics discussed range from books to films, romance, good kiwi yarns and anything in between.
The group is very informal and always looking for fellow booklovers to come along.
When: Third Wednesday of every month.
Time: 12pm - 1pm.
School Holiday Reading Programmes
The Waitomo District Library offers holiday programmes during the Summer and Winter school holidays. We invite children to read a number of books and then come and share their stories with the Library Team. Children receive incentives to encourage reading and participation. At the end of the summer programme we hold a fun finale party to celebrate their reading efforts and involvement in the programme.
During the other school holidays, we provide a free activity pack full of crafts, puzzles and reading lists, to children who visit the Library and borrow two books.
