Helensville Library and Service Centre update for June

Kia ora

A quiet month in June, as we finalise our plans for the July school holidays.

Regular events:


Thursdays at 3.30pm. We have sessions for both adults and children. These sessions are a chance to learn new skills, teach others, and chat.

June’s craft for adults is making paper flowers. You are welcome to learn this craft, and / or bring along your own projects to work on, in company.

Kids Time:

Wednesdays, 10am to 10.30am  Under 6s and their grown-ups are invited to share songs, rhymes, and stories.

Book Chat

Fourth Thursday of the month at 10am.  A chance to share books you’ve read and enjoyed – or read and hated! – with fellow readers.

This will be on Thursday 22 June at 10am.

Next month will be the Library’s eighth annual soft toy sleepover. After last year’s adventure to the Auckland War Memorial Museum, our adventures will be more local. We are finalising a date, as I type. But, pencil in Thursday 13 July!
