Changes to Giggle & Wiggle in 2017 - Last updated: 23/01/2017
Giggle & Wiggle is extremely well attended, and the number of participants has become too big at several libraries. We will now offer two Giggle & Wiggle sessions (10.15 am and a repeat session at 11.30 am) at Gungahlin, Dickson and Woden Libraries to provide improved quality, safety and comfort for everyone (there will not be a 10.30 am session at these libraries). Bookings will be required for the program at Gungahlin, Dickson and Woden Libraries and we ask that families only come to one session and book a place in advance. Giggle & Wiggle sessions at our other libraries will not change. Please click through for more information.
