Come along to your library and discover the wonderful world of literature with stories, rhymes, songs and craft for preschoolers.

Storytime is  for 0 - 5 year olds, their parents/carers and siblings. It is held four times a week during school terms: Wednesdays and Fridays, at 10am and 11am.

Check out what you can expect when you come to Storytime in our social story. This resource could be especially helpful if you or your family members have special needs and want to prepare before you come along for the first time.
A printable version is also available.

Check out the dates for school terms on the NSW Government Board of Studies website.

Are you a Daycare centre or Preschool looking to bring kids to Storytime?

Daycare centres and Preschools are not encouraged to attend these community Storytime sessions due to the space being far too squishy, however please contact us by email or phone 6926 9700 to arrange a special Storytime session on a Tuesday or Thursday. Outreach sessions are not being offered at this time.

Baby Bounce is a free, four-week early literacy program at the library. Through songs and activities, 0 - 12 month old babies are introduced to the rhythm and sound of language.

Sessions require one lap per baby, so invite Mum, Dad, aunts or uncles for extra laps if you have twins or triplets.

Contact the library or check our Library Events page to find out when the next program is due to commence.

Our Children's Area

The Children's Area is downstairs in the library and you can enter and exit through the door opposite the Wollundry Lagoon until 1pm. There are heaps of picture books, board books and audio books suitable for babies, toddlers and preschoolers, and a sensory wall to distract the little ones while you pick your new items and perhaps even enjoy a quiet moment with a coffee.
