Storytimes at Blayney, Cowra, Forbes and Orange
Reading to your little one teaches them to recognise sounds and rhythm of language and is also a great bonding exercise. So why not join in Storytimes at Central West Libraries – they are lots of fun. We read and tell stories, sing songs, play games and do craft. They are held during school terms and cater for pre-school age children and their carers. Storytime is free and each session lasts about one hour.
Blayney sessions are held on the first Thursday of the month at 11am
Cowra sessions are held on the first Thursday of the month at 11am
Forbes sessions are held fortnightly on Fridays at 10.30am. The September sessions will be on 14th and 28th September. Enjoy Rhyme Time on the alternate Fridays.
Orange sessions are held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 11am. Please book your place for Orange storytimes online through Eventbrite or call the Library on 6393 8132. Bookings are not required at other libraries.
