​Working in collaboration, City of Canning Youth Services and Libraries offer a range of activities and events for young people throughout the year.

After School, Weekend Activities and School Holidays

Our libraries and Youth Services team host a range of after school and weekend workshops, events and activities for primary and high school aged children and youth. 


Never fear, FOMO Lab is here! Get creative, experiment and never miss out on new technology at these have-a-go workshops designed for young people aged 10 to 17. There are lots of different STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths) activities to choose from – try your hand at coding a robot, 3D printing, exploring some VR worlds or crafting something amazing.

Featuring Nao robot, Nintendo Labo, Sphero, LittleBits, 3Doodler, UP mini, Kano Harry Potter coding wand… and more!
These sessions are all about exploration, innovation and creativity, no prior knowledge of technology is needed!

Fomo Lab sessions pop up throughout the year and in school holidays.

To help us keep you and our community safe:

  • bookings are essential

  • for the time being, all activities (including Rhymes and Stories) will not run as a drop-in program. All attending children, babies and older siblings must have a ticket - no ticket, no entry

  • limited places are available. Due to this, daycare/family daycare and childcare groups are asked to hold off on attending

  • physical distancing measures will be in place for all activities.

Ready, Set, Go to Game-A-Palooza!
