Kids events & programs

Reading to your child from birth is one of the best ways to kick start their early literacy journey. Sharing stories benefits your child’s language development, social development and encourages a secure bond between parent and child.

Our programs incorporate songs, rhymes, movement, and storytelling. We have great fun and as a bonus we are helping to activate the brains and bodies of your children. As your little ones approach school age, our programs also help to prepare them with the basic skills needed for a smooth transition to classroom learning.

We’re also here to support parents with up-to-date resources on child development and parenting styles.

We offer a range of activities for children to promote early language and reading skills.

Online early literacy programs

We offer online versions of our early literacy programs so you can enjoy them at home during those times you can't make it into the Libraries. We also offer craft resources for Storytimes (and anytime) over on our Crafts page. All our online early literacy programs can be found on our YouTube channel and we are creating more, so don't forget to subscribe over there so you don't miss the next one.
