Dungog Library holiday fun

Eighteen children dazzled the Dungog Library with their creativity designing their own library bags during the school holidays.

Each child got to design their own bag to take home and use again and again in the library.

"Libraries are great places to be in the school holidays offering loads of free activities to engage, educate and stimulate children and give them some much needed screen free time," said Librarian Amanda Field.

"Look out for future school holiday and other events at Dungog Library."

Coming up at the library:
