Share the delight of stories, songs, and picture books with your pre-schooler every Monday and Wednesday!

Each week we'll light up your screen at 10:30am on Mondays with 30 minutes of songs, books and rhymes via a live and interactive Zoom drop in session. Follow this link to join in!

On Wednesdays, join us in Pauline Gandel Children's Quarter at 10:30am for an in person Storytime session. Book your spot today!

Every session will feature a fun theme to inspire your little ones, and end with a craft activity or a demonstration of a science experiment to try at home.

Monday 10 May (online) and Wednesday 12 May (on-site)

This week's theme is music, with readings from Boombah by Phil Cummings, The animal boogie by Debbie Harter, Who's that down in the jungle by Peter Curry, Baby band by Siane Jackson Hill, and The very noisy bear by Nick Bland.

State Library Victoria is a Child Safe Organisation.

Stories and picture books suitable for children aged 3–5.

Please note: due to copyright restrictions, a recording of Storytime will no longer be available after the event.

Pauline Gandel Children's Quarter, supported by Gandel Philanthropy, is a purpose-built space for children and families to read, learn and play, with an associated program of activities.
