Learn the love of books.

Storytime encourages imagination, socialisation and a life-long love of books and libraries, while preparing preschool-aged children and their carers for the routines of kinder and school.

Storytime is for children aged 1-5 years and runs for approximately 30 minutes.

Please note: Sessions run during school terms only. Bookings are required for all sessions.


Returning for Term 2 from Monday 1 April.

Storytime term 2 2021 timetableWe are so excited to welcome children and their families back into our libraries for Baby Bounce and Storytime sessions. Things might look a little bit different to what you’re used to, but we are doing everything to stay COVID-Safe.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Places at each session will be limited to help us maintain social distancing.

  • Bookings are required for all sessions. In your booking, please remember to include yourself and your child (if aged over 12 months) as well as any other adults that may be attending with you. Unfortunately, we cannot accept guests without a booking.

  • Based on your feedback last term, we’ve made some changes to our registration process. Bookings will now open one in advance via the library website. Visit the What's On page for upcoming sessions.

  • If you have booked but can no longer attend, please give us a call on 1300 462 542 or reply to your confirmation email to let us know.

  • Please arrive a few minutes early so that you can be checked in before the session begins.

  • In line with current government advice, face masks are no longer required. However, you may continue to wear a mask if you choose.
