Story Time

Story Time brings stories, rhymes and songs alive for kids aged 3-5. These sessions encourage a love of books and lifelong use of libraries. Focusing on fun and creativity, kids will learn pre-reading skills, listening and language skills and an understanding of subjects and concepts e.g. daily life, the environment, animals, occupations, and seasonal events. The sessions are interactive and allow parents and carers to participate with their kids.

Story Time, which usually includes a craft activity, is held between 10.30am-11.30am during school terms.
