Cowra Storytime Fun
Cowra had 15 children plus 7 parents at the most recent Storytime Session. The theme was ‘Bears’ and the children enjoyed the stories read by volunteer Marguerite. We also had a display for ‘Babywearing Week’ and read a couple of books showing safe ways to carry babies in slings etc. The children then made bear faces and a moving toy to suit the song ‘The Bear Went Over the Mountain’. Lots of fun for everyone! Come along to Storytime at Cowra Library on the first Thursday of the month at 11am. Call the Library on 6340 2180 to book your place.
