With school holidays coming around again Campbelltown Council has planned a range of free activities for kids to be held at various branch libraries in the area. Most of the events are aimed at primary school children, aside from the Mobile Game Theatre which is targeted at middle school and high school aged young people. Here's what's on offer:
Kung Fu Panda 2 Movie Screening
