Now in its 18th successful year, National Simultaneous Storytime is an annual campaign that aims to encourage more young Australians to read and enjoy books. Join us at Lithgow Library on Wednesday 23 May at 10.30am as we celebrate this very special Storytime.

“This fun event promotes the value of reading and literacy,’” said Lithgow City Council Mayor Stephen Lesslie. “It also promotes Australian writers and storytime activities in public libraries and communities around the country.”

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.

This year’s picture book is ‘Hickory Dickory Dash’, written by Tony Wilson, and illustrated by Laura Wood. This hilarious look behind the scenes of the famous nursery rhyme may remind readers of last year’s book by the same author, ‘The cow tripped over the moon’.

The Library invites all pre-schoolers, their parents, grandparents, and friends to come along to join in our Storytime session, which includes stories, songs and craft. No bookings are needed, just come along and join in the fun.

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