The City of Wanneroo Libraries and Museums has been a significant Learning Destination partner of Children’s University since the program first started in 2017.
City of Wanneroo has four Library locations that offer you (CU members) an exciting range of free regular children and youth activities.
Explore the world of books, open your mind to imagination and socialise with others when you participate in ‘It’s all about Stories’. Lovers of Minecraft can attend the ‘LibraryCraft’ program and join other children between the age of 7 and 17 years to build imaginative worlds and participate in fun monthly competitions.
