Join us for a Games Night at Johnsonville Library this Friday 23rd November at 5pm.
We have a range of board games to choose from including popular classics like Settler of Catan, Risk or Trivial Pursuit and less common games like Starfluxx, Munchkin or King of Tokyo.
Most games are for ages 8+ though we have a few games for younger children too. You could also bring a game of your own to play with new people.
Games Night starts at 5pm but you are welcome to arrive late, you might just need to wait a little before you can join in the next round.
We’re looking forward to seeing you there
Did you know that dragonflies have been around for 300 million years or that our native snail, the Powelliphanta, can live for up to 20 years? What do you know about bugs and other creepy crawlies? Love them or hate them bugs are fascinating! In fact at Wellington Libraries we think Bugs are so awesome we put beehives on the roof of Central Library.
These school holidays we are going to be worming our way into the World of bugs, through games, fun facts, microscopes and crafts. So fly down to your local library and join in with some of the fun, free activities we have on offer, during the April school holidays.
These free events are for children aged 6+

During the school holidays Johnsonville Library was very lucky to host Sir Jon Trimmer from the Royal New Zealand Ballet.
Sir Jon performed a wonderful rendition of Peter and the Wolf to a very large crowd of enthusiastic and budding dancers.
We then learnt and practiced some ballet positions followed by the change to ask Sir Jon questions about his own career and that of the Royal New Zealand Ballet.
We learnt that ballet or pointe shoes will only last a dancer for one performance and they have a huge room that is full of ballet shoes from the floor to the ceiling because they go through so many.
Don’t miss out on the next Ballet Storytimes in August.
Here are some pictures from the performance.
