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 19 April (online) and Wednesday 21 April (on-site)

This week's theme is walking, with readings from Puddle hunters by Kirsty Murray and Karen Blair, I went walking by Sue Machin, Follow me by Ellie Sandall, and Puddles are for jumping by Kyle Dunstan. In each session you'll also learn how to make an autumn suncatcher using leaves, cling wrap and a paper plate!

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.
