Events and Promotions: National Simultaneous Storytime 2024

National Simultaneous Storytime 2024

Bowerbird Blues by Aura Parker

National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) is held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) with the aim of encouraging more young Australians to read and enjoy books. 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 and bookshops all over Australia.

This year's chosen book is Bowerbird Blues, written and illustrated by Aura Parker. 

NSS takes place this year on Wednesday 22 May 2024 at the new time of 12.00 pm and we would love it if you could join us!
