MidCoast Libraries and Manning Regional Art Gallery have organised a range of activities to entertain children and at the same time, foster their creativity during the winter school holidays.
The holidays begin this Friday, July 3 and finish two weeks later on Friday, July 17.
Children can join in some activities from the comfort of their own home with the teams putting together a range of online events.
"With some COVID19 restrictions still in place, we thought it was best to take our holiday program online in July and we've got some fantastic events lined up with all the resources provided," MidCoast Libraries manager, Chris Jones said.
"From making a model canoe, to learning to create crazy collage faces, these events are designed to encourage creativity."

All activities have take-home packs which will be available for collection from participating libraries and Manning Regional Art Gallery from this Friday, July 3.
The Make a Model Canoe event and Let's Make a Kaleidoscope will be available for children throughout the school holidays with an instructional video remaining on the libraries and gallery websites, while Crazy Collage Faces on July 9 at 10am and Let's Make a Notebook on July 16 at 10am are scheduled Zoom sessions and places are limited.
"We're pleased this format will allow us to make some of our activities more accessible," Mr Jones said.
"We hope to see more kids getting creative with us these holidays."
