Minecraft Club

If you're aged 8-12 and enjoy playing adventure games, join us for Minecraft Club at Patterson Lakes and Clarinda Libraries!

Using a selection of specially crafted content maps ranging in difficulty levels for beginner to intermediate crafters, our sessions are aimed to teach a variety of skills to students from basic computer skills to problem-solving, working collaboratively with others, as well as how to be good cyber citizens all while having a ton fun!

We have limited places in our Minecraft sessions, so bookings are essential. Please phone us on 1300 135 668 or ask at your local branch.
