Story Time - Now Online

Children enjoying Story time

City of Parramatta Council is reopening its libraries for limited access from Tuesday 2 June, with increased health and safety measures in line with Federal and State Government guidelines.

In efforts to minimise physical contact and protect customers and staff, our libraries have introduced a click-and-collect service where customers can pre-order items and pick them up by appointment only. Library members can reserve items online or over the phone (9806 5159) from Monday 1 June.

Dear Friends of the Library,
We encourage you to continue enjoying Story Time with your children via Story Time Videos that our Children’s staff have created for you to watch In the comfort of your home. For tips about online safety, read this document.
