For Storytime this month we will be reading Whatcha Building, written by Andrew Daddo and illustrated by Stephen Michael King, on Friday 25 October from 10:30am.  

The sessions are designed for children aged 3 to 6 years and aim to develop early literacy skills in a fun and social environment. There is no need to book for our free sessions, simply turn up.

Older and younger siblings are welcome to join in the fun. We also love hosting large groups at the library, but would appreciate if you could let us know how many people are coming so we can make plans to accommodate you.
