Grab and Go Hobby Kits

Our new Grab & Go bags are here for anyone wanting to start a new hobby or looking for a fun weekend activity.


We have five bags which you can borrow from the library for up to two weeks with your library card. Each includes a range of items to help get you started and can be enjoyed by individuals, friends or Whānau.

Topics include:

Baking - Cookie cutters, cake tins, piping sets, measuring cups and the famous Australian Women's Weekly Cookbook. This is perfect for a weekend baking project.

Arts and Crafts - Draw, sculpt and play! The arts and crafts bag is all about having fun and finding your creativity.

Travel - See the world with games, language cards and recipes or find out ways you can travel in your own backyard.

Mindfulness - Take a moment to pause and unwind with a range of activities which encourage mindfulness and can help you find a bit of calm.

Games - Have fun with friends (and maybe get a bit competitive) with cards, animation, LEGO and board games.


All bags can be found in the Elma Turner Library and through our catalogue.
