Get ready to go on safari.

To mark the school holidays, Whittlesea’s libraries are celebrating African culture and all things safari from Tuesday, April 3 to Sunday, April 15.

The fun begins with a safari crafts session at Mill Park library on April 3, where children can let their imagination run wild.

They can also make a mini safari scene, with Whittlesea and Mill Park libraries hosting diorama workshops on April 5 from 11am-noon and April 9 from 2-3pm respectively.

The rhythms of Africa will take over Lalor library on April 6, with a drumming workshop between 11am-12.30pm.

On April 12, kids can get up close with some native wildlife at Mill Park, from 2-3pm.
