Our fun Storytime sessions are run at every library branch and are suitable for kids aged 2-5 years.

Storytime is a free weekly program of stories, rhymes and songs that encourages a love of reading and helps eager young minds develop a range of important skills such as language development, counting, imagination, concentration, creativity and listening.

No booking is required, just come along. If you can’t make it, you can enjoy the storytelling experience with Storybox, a wonderful online resource designed specifically for Australian children.
