Story time opportunities for children at Horsham Library

Wimmera families looking for a fun, interactive activity for young children on a Friday morning can attend a storytime session at Horsham Library.

Storytime returns on Friday following the easing of COVID-19 restrictions in regional Victoria.

Librarian Margaret Barbetti said the sessions, from 10.30am, were capped at 10 children.

“We want to see people coming back to the library,” she said.

“Storytime is great for kids.

“The government has recognised that literacy is important and the more kids are read to before they start school, the better they are able to learn.

“They pick up the language through listening to the words.”

Horsham Library is open for business but patrons are required to comply with government rules including QR check-ins and social distancing.

Bookings for storytime are essential by emailing horsham.library@wrlc.org.au or in person at the library.
