Storytime, Toddler Time and Rhyme Time 

Nurture your child’s listening, language and learning skills in these fun filled sessions of stories, songs and rhymes..

Online Storytime sessions

We know you’re all missing Storytimes, and so are we! While we can’t invite you into our lovely library spaces for Storytime at the moment, we’re hoping you’ll invite us into your loungeroom and join in the fun of Storytime online.

Your favourite library storytellers have been busy recording storytime sessions so you can read, sing and dance along to all your beloved books, songs and rhymes! We’ve included some of the latest ones here.

Check out our YouTube channel or Facebook pages for more!
