National Simultaneous Storytime


ATDW pixel
It's storytime at the State Library of South Australia, together with the rest of Australia and they need your help.

Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator, is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country.

Help break last year's record of over 2 million simultaneous readers. Come along to the historic Circulating Library, South Australia's first library, for the National Simultaneous Storytime. This event is held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA).

They will share this year's story, The Bowerbird Blues, by Aura Parker and have some fun hands-on activities to do.

You will need to register your child to attend and accompany them to the session.

Aura Parker is an award-winning illustrator, writer and designer. Her picture books are joyful with a playful sense of humour, brimming with details to explore. Aura Parker’s storytelling through words and pictures inspires imagination, courage and confidence in young readers as well as a love, curiosity and passion for nature.
