National Simultaneous Storytime
Every year in May, the library participates in National Simultaneous Storytime, where we conduct fun Storytime and activities. It aims to encourage more young Australians to read and enjoy books.

Book Week​
Book Week also takes place annually; as a national initiative every August. Its aims are to promote children's interest in reading. Due to Covid-19, Book Week has been moved to October and all events will be online.
