mother and child


We have a brand-new Children’s Library full of beautiful books to share with you.

Join us from 10.30 – 11 am on Mondays during term time, beginning 10 February 2020.

Our storytime sessions are designed as a bonding experience for children and their carers so why not plan a special day in the city and visit the BIG Library. Join us as we enjoy stories, songs and rhymes in our beautiful new space.

Meet in the Children’s Library, Macquarie building, Lower Ground Floor.

The sessions are designed for children aged 3 to 5 but younger siblings are welcome too.

Bookings are not required.

Parents or caregivers must accompany children for the duration of the session.

There are no sessions during NSW school or public holidays.

Early Childhood Centres and Family Day Care groups please contact us to find out about our preschool program for groups.
