Story and Rhyme Time Sessions – Every Week

Weekly Story and Rhyme Time sessions are held for under school aged children. Babies and children who love books and have the pleasure of hearing stories and rhymes have a flying start when it comes to learning to read by themselves. Sessions are organised locally and take place in libraries. They incorporate a mix of songs, rhymes, rhythm and movement as well as providing the opportunity to share games, novelty books and toys. Head along to your local library to take part in Rhyme Time and other events – children are never too young to join the library, it is free and lots of fun!

HARVEY: Story Time: Every Wednesday at 9.30am

AUSTRALIND: Story Time: Every Wednesday at 10am. Rhyme Time: Every Tuesday and Friday at 10am.

Special story times are held for day cares, play groups and preschools on request. Please contact the Principal Librarian on 9729 0390 for more information.
