We are excited to invite you to our new monthly online storytimes!

Featuring some of Australia’s greatest picture book authors and illustrators, these virtual sessions are the perfect way to bring your favourite authors into your lounge rooms, classrooms and early learning centres.  

In each fun-filled session, an outstanding author will share a live reading of their book, and surprise you with a themed activity, ranging from songs to puppets and games.  

Online storytimes are designed for children 3–6 years of age and will take place on the third Wednesday of each month during school terms only. There are no sessions during NSW school or public holidays.
