In parallel with council’s KRANK program, the city’s libraries are also offering school holiday activities.

Children and teens will be able to sing, dance, laugh and learn, all for free.

There will be a mix of in-person and online activities such as Minecraft pirate maps and ships with STEM Punks, guitar workshop for beginners for children and teens, school holiday craft and LEGO robotics.

“There is no need to be bored … these school holidays as there is something organised for all ages and interests,” the city’s lifestyle chair Laurie Koranski said.

“I encourage families to explore the full program and get in quickly and book into anything that interests them as our holiday programs are always heavily in demand.”

Popular local entertainers and authors will be part of the program.

Best-selling author Deano Yipadee will present his World’s Greatest School Holiday Show at Logan West, Jimboomba, Logan Village, Beenleigh, Logan Hyperdome and Logan North libraries.

Award-winning author, musician and storyteller Gregg Dreise will host My Culture and Me sessions for three to 10-year-olds featuring musical and storytelling sessions at Logan Hyperdome and Logan Central libraries.

Children can go on an outback adventure at Marsden and Logan North libraries with the Nana Magic, Tilly and Friends show delivered by Isabella Mancy, Uraine Roelofs (known as Nana Magic) and Felix Kerry.

A drawing workshop for primary school aged children and a watercolour fantasy map making session for children and teens will be delivered by local children’s author and illustrator Dr Cameron Stelzer.

Young people can also book into a Mystery Writing session with Rhiannon D Elton or a Drawing Characters and Backgrounds session with Gregg Dreise.
