Read with redsee
Redsee the Readasaurus is the mascot of Paint Parra REaD, a community literacy strategy which aims to promote the importance of reading to, talking to, singing to and playing with children from birth.
To support this initiative, Parramatta Library provides regular children’s sessions to encourage children and their parents and caregivers to read to their children from birth.
Please note, parents need to register their children for Parramatta Story Time due to the popularity of sessions as only thirty children can attend each session. Children can only attend one session per week relevant to their age group.
