National Simultaneous Storytime: A blast!
Children dressed up in their finest space-theme attire to listen to Philip Bunting’s National Simultaneous Storytime book Give me some Space! read by astronaut Dr Shannon Walker from the International Space Station.
Once again, National Simultaneous Storytime was a huge success with 1,939,596 readers across 31,696 locations including Cowra, Forbes, Manildra, Molong and Orange. We did the math and given where the International Space Station was at 11:00 AEST, which was at 418 km altitude, if the participants were all holding hands, we could get there and back 3.5 times.
Thank you to all who dressed up and joined in the shared story. We hope we have inspired you to keep exploring space!

Cowra Library Storytime Returns
Storytime caters for preschool age children and their carers. It helps them prepare for school with children practising listening, communication and social skills. It is free and each session lasts approximately half an hour.
Please arrive 10 minutes early to allow the event to run on time. The storyteller and audience are disrupted by people arriving late. And please bring your enthusiasm, but leave your mobile phone in your bag turned off or down. Thank you.
Cowra Library Staff are ready to supply customers with summer reading materials. Come in to the cool Library and dip into the pool filled with adventure stories, OR check out the digital media display offering music CDs, DVDs and audio books all with a Christmas or Summer theme.
Today we played carols to set the scene and I heard customers humming in (and out) of tune . The kids loved singing out loud! Their favourite was “All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth “. The disc comes with the book which Maryanne read to them today.
Come in and pick up you Summer Reading Club pack. This year’s theme is Adventure!
