You may even see special guests including Mayor Carol Adams, Fairy Rebecca, Karrak, and an Astronaut there!

About National Simultaneous Storytime:
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. 2021 will be the 21st year of the campaign. It is a colourful, vibrant, fun event that aims to promote the value of reading and literacy.
