Published 28 March 2024, updated 22 May 2024

Join us and other libraries around Australia for a special Storytime session to celebrate National Simultaneous Storytime!

This year's book is Bowerbird Blues by Aura Parker, starring a beautiful Bowerbird on the search for Blue!

'A moving story of longing and connection, that unfolds as the bowerbird's search sends him soaring across the sea, sky and city'

Join us for a very special reading of Bowerbird Blues, followed by an activity of colouring and decorating a bowerbird's nest with blue treasures.

We encourage all to come dressed in their best blue attire.

In celebration of NSS, we will also incorporate Bowerbird-themed activities in our regularly scheduled Storytime (Friday 24/05) and Little Explorers (20/05) sessions. We hope to see you for our special reading on Wednesday 22 May 2024.
