Where's the Elf?


Forget Where's Waldo, we have a real-life elf hunt in the children's department at Nepean Centrepointe all December long! 

Each night our elf mysteriously finds a new perch. The next time you're at the library, we invite you to try and find the hidden elf. 

And while you're here, why not make a snowflake at our snowflake station!
