Story Time


Story Time is a wonderful way to introduce your child to books and reading. It allows children under five to hear rhymes, stories and language, and broaden their creativity and imagination.

Story Time sessions are held on Thursdays starting at 10am at the Mawson Lakes Library and run during school terms only.  Parents, grandparents, carers and friends are very welcome.

Giggle Time


Parents or carers of children aged zero to two can have fun building early literacy skills through sharing books, songs and action rhymes.

The experiences that children have in their early years shape their development, ability to learn, social skills and self-esteem.

Giggle Time sessions are held on Mondays and start at 10.00am at the Mawson Lakes Library. Sessions are only available during the school term.

Parents, grandparents, carers and friends are very welcome.
