Special storytime in local libraries

Author Shane Peters will visit Gloucester and Stroud libraries later this month to celebrate the release of his new children's book.

'Skylah Dreams' is the first installment in Shane's series of children's books and follows the story of a young girl who dreams of all the things she would like to be when she grows up.

Shane will be at Gloucester Library on Monday, August 19 from 10am to 11am and Stroud Library on Friday, August 23 from 10.30am to 11.30am as part of a series of Storytime sessions.

He will also visit libraries in Taree, Wingham, Forster, Tea Gardens and Hallidays Point.

"We just love our Storytime events across the MidCoast and to have a local author with us to read his very own book to the children, is really special," MidCoast Council's libraries manager Chris Jones said.
