Harmony Day Storytime at Lithgow Library

Lithgow Library invites everyone to a special multicultural Harmony Day Storytime on Wednesday 20 March 2018.

“Diversity is what makes Australia a great place to live and Harmony Day is a celebration of our cultural diversity – a day of cultural respect for everyone who calls Australia home,” said Mayor Cr Ray Thompson.

The message of Harmony Day is ‘everyone belongs’.  Harmony Day aims to engage people to participate in their community, respect cultural and religious diversity and foster a sense of belonging for everyone. Since 1999, more than 70,000 Harmony Day events have been held in childcare centres, schools, community groups, churches, businesses and federal, state and local government agencies across Australia.

“Our cultural diversity should be something we celebrate every day. It’s what makes us stronger as a community. Harmony Day is a day of cultural respect for all,” continued the Mayor.

Participants at the special Harmony Day Storytime will enjoy some stories from around the world, fun songs, craft activities, delicious Vietnamese rolls from Pho 68 and other multicultural treats. 

Storytime is an early literacy program aimed at pre-schoolers and their families. This is a free event and all are welcome so why not join in on Wednesday 20 March 2018 from 10.30am.

Please contact Lithgow Library on 6352 9100 if you need any further information.
