National Simultaneous Storytime 22 May 11am

Join in the shared story of Alpacas with Maracas by Matt Cosgrove at Cowra, Forbes, Manildra, Molong and Orange Libraries on Wednesday 22 May at 11am.

Children will love the story being enjoyed by thousands of other children at the same time across Australia followed by craft.

The story features alpacas Macca and Al in a talent show. It takes them some time to work out they can play the maracas. It is a great rhyming story and very entertaining. Join in the fun and look out for VIP guests at Orange City Library.
