Toddler Storytime runs on Tuesdays and Fridays (repeat session) at 9:30am and includes a combination of singing, dancing, craft time and storytelling.

Research confirms reading to children just 10 minutes each day strengthens literacy, models positive reading behaviour, and builds children’s self-esteem about reading.

Toddler Storytime is a partnership between the Roxby Downs Health Service and the Library.

Bookings are not required.
