LIBRARIES are getting into the festive spirit this upcoming holiday period to offer some Christmas-themed activities on the Fraser Coast.

Community, Cultural and Family Services councillor George Seymour said activities would begin from December 18 with Christmas Cooking for Kids, open to children aged six years and older.

"Cooking is sure to be a hit with children keen on rustling up some Christmas treats to take home and share with their families," he said.

"On December 20, the kids will have the chance to get creative and make some beaded Christmas decorations.

"I'm sure the different activities will appeal to children right across the Fraser Coast and It's going to be a lot of fun.

"Bookings are essential and must be made at the libraries along with the small booking fee of $2.70."

The activities will run at both the Hervey Bay and Maryborough libraries.

The Hervey Bay sessions will be held from 10am-11am and in Maryborough from 2pm-3pm.

Cr Seymour said the activities were also great way to introduce children to the libraries as fun and active spaces.

"There is a lot happening at the libraries year round," he said.

"We cater for all ages and over the school holidays we have a specific focus on children.

"Libraries are primarily about books, but they are much more than that.

"They are a community hub - a place for enjoyment, creativity, education and broadening horizons."
