Celebrate Storytime Turning 20

2 weeks ago | by

A Storytime session.

Do you have fond memories of coming to Storytime at your local library? Or did you introduce your kids to the joy of reading through these ever-popular sessions? Help us celebrate 20 years of Storytime by sharing your stories – and cake – at the Harry Bailey Memorial Library on October 10.

“Storytime is often the first experience many local kids have of books and reading and the sessions remain among the most popular happenings we have at the libraries. The fantastic storytellers are like local celebrities,” said Catherine Turner, Library Operations and Programs Coordinator.

“It’s wonderful that, in this age of online technology, they are still as popular as ever – and we’re starting to see some of those early parents now coming back with their grandkids.

“As it’s all about Storytime, we want people to share their memories or favourite picture books with us on the day – and beforehand on our Facebook page. Everyone is welcome.”

The celebration will take place at the regular Coffs Harbour Storytime session on Wednesday, October 10, at 11am with Birthday Stories and cake.

Attendance is free, but people are being asked to register online for catering purposes via https://storytime_birthday.eventbrite.com.au

If you can’t make the 11am celebration, you can still call in for a piece of cake until 5pm on the day.

Storytime sessions are held at the three libraries every week. They are all free.
