Easter Holiday 2021 Library Activities

Are you looking for somewhere to take children during the Easter school holidays?

As part of the Holiday Activites and Food Programme (HAF) in West Sussex this Easter, Education & Skills have partnered with our fabulous Library Service to present a new and EGG-citing blend of virtual and face to face opportunities. Families can find stories and activities each Tuesday and Thursday of the Easter holidays online or via the Family Corner Facebook page. There are competitions and challenges based on some of our favourite stories about food and growing, as well as ‘science in your kitchen’ experiments to try at home. There are also some exciting recipes from our friends at UK Harvest.

For anyone not online, everything is available to collect in a bag from the door of your local library. If you make a trip to the library, you will find that all 36 West Sussex libraries are offering a Staff Select service. Just fill in the online form or phone ahead to specify what you would like to read, and the library will do the rest, including letting you know when everything is available for you to collect from the door. Joining the library is free for everyone - adults and children.  Join online
to access a huge range of e-books and magazines.

West Sussex will be further developing the HAF offer for future holiday periods and we will keep you up to date with those developments as they happen.
