Regular on-site programs have returned to Wagga Wagga City Library, after a temporary hiatus during the COVID-19 lockdown.
Storytime, our popular and educational selection of activities, craft and picture books, for one- to five-year-olds and their caregivers, offers two sessions each Wednesday and Friday, at 10am and 11am.
Storytime takes place in the downstairs Children's Area, with physical distancing measures in place.
Each session is strictly limited to 20 people in total, including children.
Storytime is free to attend, but online bookings are essential, and made available 24 hours before each session.
The library's award-winning Language Café has also resumed, with sessions every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday from 11am.
The Language Café helps locals who have English as their second or sometimes third language to practise and improve their conversational English.
Language Café classes have a friendly atmosphere, so participants can strengthen their English language skills while building new social networks and improving their listening skills.
The classes are held in the library's Community Learning Space and are free to attend, but bookings are essential.
Tech Savvy Seniors, a program providing free technology training to older people across NSW, has also returned, on selected Friday mornings throughout the remainder of 2021, and into 2022.
Provided in partnership with the NSW Government and Telstra, Tech Savvy Seniors classes offer small-group lessons on specific technology skills, such as using the internet, or mastering your tablet or smartphone.
Tech Savvy Seniors is not just about teaching you how to use a gadget: it's about using technology to enhance social engagement and interaction, as well as connection with friends, families and communities.
Places are limited, and bookings are essential.
