Arts and Craft Market Day

Saturday 3 December will see libraries around our network transformed into arts and craft markets for the day!

With stalls featuring wares from local artisans, the Markets will be an excellent opportunity for people to support their local creative communities. And also get a head-start on their Christmas shopping.

The Arts & Craft Market Day will take place at the following libraries and times:
• Belmont Library 10:00am–12:00noon
• Corio Library 10:00am–12:00noon
• Drysdale Library 10:00am–12:00noon
• Geelong Library & Heritage Centre 10:00am–12:00noon
• Leopold Library 10:00am–12:00noon
• Ocean Grove Library 10:00am–12:00noon
• Torquay Library 12pm – 2.00pm
• Waurn Ponds Library 10:00am–12:00noon

The Markets are free; pop in to one or a few!

This initiative aims to encourage and support our local creative communities by providing a public space to sell their creations; to promote community connection and wellbeing; and encompass a diverse range of creative talents that reflect our community.
