Christmas Storytime celebrations get underway at MidCoast libraries this month and all pre-schoolers are invited to come along and enjoy.

Gloucester Library’s weekly storytime will have a festive theme on Monday, December 6 from 10am until 11am to help the children get into the spirit.

Christmas themed Storytime sessions will take place at Taree, Gloucester, Wingham, Hallidays Point, Forster, Stroud and Tea Gardens Libraries and will include stories, songs, craft and morning tea.

"There will be lots of stories, songs and Christmas craft at our Storytimes - it's a lovely way to finish off the year and get ready for the holidays" said council's community outreach librarian, Debbie Horgan.

The sessions take place at the libraries at:

  • Wingham and Gloucester on Monday, December 4
  • Forster on Wednesday, December 6
  • Taree and Harrington on Thursday, December 7
  • Hallidays Point and Stroud on Friday, December 8 
  • Tea Gardens on Monday, December 11

Storytime sessions run all year (during school terms) at MidCoast libraries and are a fabulous family activity which supports development of early literacy skills and encourages families to read with their children.

There's a break during the summer school holidays, but they'll be back in February 2018 - keep an eye on the website for details.

These are free events and there's no need to book - just come along with your Christmas cheer!
