Storytime at the library


Share the excitement and love of reading with your child and join us as we read stories, finger play, rhyme, sing and play music.

Story times for children aged 0 - 6 years are presented every week during school term.

Children are encouraged to develop confidence and self-esteem by interacting with other children and actively participating in program activities.
