Family entertainment and murals by young people and seniors all part of Walk the Walls

A pop-up library in a laneway and family entertainment in Monro Park are part of the Walk the Walls festival.

Festival-goers will also be able to watch young people and seniors working on murals in separate locations.

Sutherland Shire Libraries' Pop-Up Library will be located in Surf Lane.

In a shady setting with comfortable seating, people will be able to explore virtual reality and download exclusive digital titles, including new and bestselling eBooks, audiobooks and digital magazines.

The library's new virtual reality headsets will be available for the first time.

People wishing to use the headsets or download content will need to have library membership, but they can join on the spot.

Monro Park will host a range of family friendly activities.

T-shirts will be screen printed with stencil art and children can get their faces painted.

The Plastic Free Cronulla stall will encourage people to be environmentally conscious and reusable water bottles will be filled at Sydney Water Refill stations.

A Dunningham Park amenities block will be transformed into what the council describes as "a creative and expressive masterpiece" by young people from Engadine Youth Services.

Professional street artist Mistery has been working with the youth on the design, which has the theme of Cronulla, Dharawal, Ecology and Beach.

Participants are aged 12-24, reside in Sutherland Shire and have various levels of experience and skills.

Live Australian Music Week festivities will be also located in Dunningham Park.

The council says "street art isn't only for the young, it's also for the young at heart".

Seniors will be working on and displaying their own mural, titled A Walk Through Time, on the Cronulla mall stage.

The design, reflecting Cronulla's history, was created over four months by 12 seniors, working with street artist Corey Nichols (Born Ready Art).

The workshops included members from the Continuum Art Society, the Southern Cross Art Group and Sutherland Shire Council Seniors Reference Group.
