Adults and children come together in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. It's a great place for new parents and newcomers to the district to meet other families. Mums and Dads, Grandparents and Carers join in the fun as well and share the adventures that books can bring. Story Time is an ideal beginning to building literacy skills for our children. We look forward to meeting you.
