We will take your babies through their musical paces!

Baby Rock & Rhyme is held every Tuesday at 9.30am (except during the Christmas school holidays).

Baby Rock & Rhyme is a way for parents and carers to interact with their babies through rhymes, finger-plays and stories delivered by experienced presenters. It's a great opportunity to have fun, socialise and spend quality 'one-on-one' time with your tot. These are free, weekly interactive sessions.

Book Group

The Island Bay Library Book Discussion Group meets in the library from 12 noon on the first Wednesday of each month. A group of locals get together to share what they have been reading lately. There are no set books and a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction is recommended - a great chance to share a cup of tea or coffee, meet some fellow bibliophiles and discover some new reads.

Enquire at Island Bay Library if you'd like to know more.
