The Gold Coast City Council’s Southport Library is our local library and is available for all families to access. They have a vast amount of books, toys, computers and other events suitable for children of all ages.
Please have a look at this month’s library events from the brochure in our reception. We regularly borrow books from the library for the children at our centre and ask children what they would like us to borrow. Please also feel free to suggest books we could borrow to further your child’s learning.
