National Simultaneous Story Time

On Wednesday 27 May 2020 join Australians across the country for the annual National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS). This year, you will be reading Whitney and Britney, chicken divas, written and Illustrated by Lucinda Gifford.

National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) is held annually. Every year a picture book by an Australian author is read simultaneously around Australia. All library events for children aim to:

  • Promote the value of reading and literacy
  • Promote the value and fun of books
  • Promote an Australian writer and publisher
  • Promote Story Time activities
  • Encourage parents and family to participate in and enjoy the occasion

Get involved

This year the City won’t be holding its traditional Story Time sessions, instead the City’s Libraries will have an Online Story Time session available so that you can sing songs and listen to the story with Library Staff. Enjoy this special Story Time session with Ness.

Can’t make it to Story Time?

Whitney and Britney, chicken divas has also been added to Story Box Library especially for NSS. You can enjoy Story Time at home, at any time with Story Box Library. Your library membership gives you access to hundreds of free story books for children read as a story time presentation.
