Storytime

Evidence shows that reading regularly to a child from birth gives them a head start once they start school. That’s why we’re passionate about our early childhood reading programs.

Storytime at the Library is lots of fun. We read and tell stories, sing songs, play games and do craft. They are held during the school term and cater for preschool children and their carers. Storytime is free and each session lasts approximately one hour. For further information contact your local library.
