New children's story sessions at Kwinana Library

​​7 June 2017

The Kwinana Library has increased their free children’s story sessions thanks to popular demand. The addition of the Toddler Time session has completed the Library’s offering to now cater for children zero to five years old. There are four sessions each week during the school term for children and parents to discover the benefits of books and storytelling together. 

The story sessions are tailored to suit each age group, with a different book and theme focused on each week. Rhyme Time, for babies up to 18 months, is focused on songs and rhymes along with a simple story. Toddler Time is suited to children aged around one to three years who have become too active for the Rhyme Time session. Toddler Time involves parachute play and more action-based stories and craft activities to take home. For children aged two to five, Story Time has been the Library’s most popular program for many years, with a selection of stories and a matching craft activity for skill development.

Kwinana Mayor Carol Adams said the sessions are a great way to familiarise children with books and reading from a young age.

“The Library’s story sessions are bright and fun, with songs and craft activities to really get  the imagination working.” said Mayor Adams.

“Helping to develop early literacy skills before children reach school age is great for their confidence. Best of all, the sessions are offered by the City for free.”
