National Simultaneous Story Time


National Simultaneous Story Time is back for its 22nd year on Wednesday 25 May.

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

Last year was the biggest and most successful NSS to date, with over 1.98 million participants at over 33 thousand locations.

The book chosen for 2022 is Family Tree, written by Josh Pyke, and illustrated by Ronojoy Ghosh. The book is a heartfelt celebration of family, community and the seasons of life.

Get involved – Monday 23 May to Saturday 28 May

City of Joondalup Libraries will be celebrating National Simultaneous Story Time all week, so come along for Story Time to listen to this wonderful story. All sessions begin at 10.00am.
