‘Reptiles on the Go’ and ‘Move like a Bollywood Star’ headline a jam-packed holiday season at the Riverina Regional Library branches.

Reptiles on the Go allows children to get up close with crocodiles, shingleback, frill-necked and blue tongue lizards, turtles, frogs and more. They will also learn about snake safety in an age-appropriate way.

The reptiles will be visiting nine locations within the Riverina Regional Library network from Monday 8 January to Thursday 11 January.

This experience has become a much-loved holiday highlight in many Riverina towns and villages where sessions are usually booked out well in advance.

Learn to move like a Bollywood star at the fun and interactive Bollywood workshops, hosted by Coota Bollywood All Stars. Participants will be able to play with costumes and props, try beginner dance moves and learn all about this fascinating industry.

Fiona Braybrooks from Coota Bollywood All Stars has performed extensively at festivals around the Riverina and is looking forward to sharing her love and knowledge of Bollywood in these workshops.

“I’m really looking forward to bringing the fun of Bollywood dance to the Culcairn and Jindera communities,” Fiona said.

“I always enjoy sharing my love of Bollywood dance and talking about the artistic process behind the Coota Bollywood All Stars!”

Creative kids will be spoiled for choice with a huge range of art, craft and food activities on offer. Kids can try their hand at decorating a flower windmill at Coolamon Library on Wednesday 10 January or at Junee Library on Wednesday 11 January.
