Childrens Activities

COVID-19 Update - All Library programs and activities cancelled.
In the interest of public health, Ryde Library Service has taken the difficult decision to suspend or cancel all regular programs, activities and events until further notice. At this stage all our libraries remain open and we will continue to monitor and follow advice of state and federal authorities. We ask customers that are feeling unwell or have recently returned from overseas to please take care of yourself and those around you and self-isolate. Should this be the case we are happy to extend your loans and please visit the Online Library to access the eCollections at our online library.
