Pre-School Storytime

Storytime is a fun and interactive 30 minute session for parents and children aged 2-5. It consists of stories, songs and activities which aim to encourage literacy and a love of reading in children. Storytime is a great way to bond with your child. It is also valuable preparation for starting school, as it gives children a chance to participate in a group and introduces them to books and reading.

During school terms only.

Please note: due to space restrictions participant numbers are limited at Castle Hill and Rouse Hill. Special group visits are welcome by appointment at any branch.

Contact staff at any of the Hills Libraries for further information.
