We are excited to be participating in the National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) again for 2019! Held by the Australian Library and Information Association, this is an annual event where each 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, along with the rest of Australia, we will be reading Alpacas with Maracas,  written and illustrated by Matt Cosgrove.

National Simultaneous Storytime aims to :

  • promote the value of reading and literacy,
  • promote the value and fun of books,
  • promote an Australian writer and publisher,
  • promote storytime activities in public libraries and communities around the country,
  • and provide opportunities to involve parents, grandparents, the media and others to participate in and enjoy the occasion.
