Saturday morning Storytime launches at Frankston Library on Saturday 19 October. Families can now enjoy the fun together and encourage an early love of reading in their children.
Frankston City Libraries Manager, Tammy Goodwin, said the introduction of Saturday morning Storytime allows working families the opportunity to foster a love of reading and learning in their little ones before they start school.
“Kids love Storytime and for so many years working parents and carers have had to miss out on this quality time together,” said Ms Goodwin.
“We’re looking forward to the dancing, singing, storytelling and craft on a Saturday morning bringing plenty of laughter and family fun into Frankston Library, as it does during the week.
“Australian research has found that children who are read to six or seven times a week have a literacy level almost a year ahead of children who are not read to at home and are more likely to learn more when they start school,” added Ms Goodwin.
Saturday morning Storytime will run every second Saturday from 19 October at Frankston Library until the end of this year.
“Make sure you’re following @FrankstonCityLibraries on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to find out the special theme for our Saturday morning Storytime. Your child is encouraged to dress up in the theme of the week,” added Ms Goodwin.
“Everyone’s favourite mystical creature, unicorns, will be the first Saturday morning Storytime theme.”
