September news and events for Helensville Library

Helensville Library1 Helensville LibraryDid you know… Helensville Library is one of 55 libraries (plus a few mobile libraries) around Auckland. You can return books to ANY of the Auckland Libraries branches, and issue items from any of them. From Waiuku to Wellsford, Waiheke to Great Barrier, your library needs are covered.
NEW!: Due to customer requests, from September 7, we will be trailing Rhymetime sessions at Helensville Library.
Rhymetime provides music, movement and action rhymes to pre-schoolers and their caregivers. It is aimed at 18 months to 3 years, but older and younger pre-schoolers are welcome.
We’re not sure when the best time for these sessions will be, so we’re trailing a few different times and days:
Wednesdays 10.30am-11am
Thursdays 11.30am-12noon
Thursdays 2pm-2.30pm
Come along to whichever session, or sessions, suit.
