National Simultaneous Storytime

Buckle up and get reading with us at National Simultaneous Storytime! This year we’re sharing Josh Pyke’s beautiful book Family Tree, with wonderous illustrations by Ronojoy Ghosh. The story is a celebration of family, community and the seasons of life. 

National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) is held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA).
Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator, is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country.

National Simultaneous Storytime is a colourful, vibrant, fun event to promote the value of reading and literacy.

NSS will be held at the following libraries on Wednesday 25 May.
Carlingford Library, Constitution Hill Library, Dundas Library, Epping Library, Ermington Library, Parramatta Library, Wentworth Point Library. 

Please arrive at 10.45am for a  simultaneous reading at 11:00am.

Bookings not required. Places are limited.
