Current and Upcoming Events

Special Storytime featuring Royal Life Saving WA

Don't miss your chance to learn water safety tips from Royal Life Saving WA and Dippy the Duck.

Sessions will be held on Tuesday 11 September at 10.30am at Port Hedland Library and Thursday 13 September at 10.30am at South Hedland Library.

Tips will include how to keep watch of children in and around water, controlling children's access to pools and the importance of learning to swim.

The latest statistics show there were 291 drownings in aquatic locations in the year leading up to 30 June 2017, which shows the importance of the water safety message.

If you’d like more information on the sessions, please contact Port Hedland Library on 9158 9378 or South Hedland Library on 9158 9373.
