Zoom Storytimes

For 1-5 year olds. Designed to foster a love of reading and books.   

As restrictions will likely keep Storytime groups small, it has been decided to keep Storytime on Zoom for just a few more days so that more families can participate.


Zoom Storytime with Wendy: Monday 2 August, Friday 6 August

Zoom Storytime with Lisa: Thursday 5 August

Zoom Storytime with Emily: Wednesday 4 August

Zoom Storytime with Suzi: Tuesday 3 August

Zoom Bedtime Storytime: Tuesday 3 August at 7pm
