This autumn’s Explore campaign will be the first of four related holiday programmes encouraging primary school age children [5 to 11 years old] to visit their local library, and then explore and learn about their environment.

“We’re really excited to see how this goes. It’s a great way for tamariki to keep reading and be active over the school holidays,” said Annette Beattie, Wairarapa Library Service Manager.

Packs will be available from Carterton, Featherston, Greytown, or Martinborough libraries from Monday [11 April].

The pack includes STEM [Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics] based puzzles, games, tasks, and quizzes to keep the whole whanau entertained.

From word searches to geocaching, there’s something for everyone.

If you are a library local, or visiting Wairarapa for the Easter holidays, pop down to Carterton, Featherston, Greytown, or Martinborough libraries from Monday [11 April] and pick up a pack.

And there are no worries If you can’t make it out. Contact your local library and we can help get one to you too.
