A small but enthusiastic gathering of children attended Eden Library on Wednesday, April 19, for some story time fun.

The four youngsters were treated to a reading of Dr Seuss’ classic children’s book The Lorax, which chronicles the plight of the environment.

The book reading was one of a number of school holiday activities held across the Bega Valley Shire Libraries which included craft, music production workshops and much more.

Also proving popular are the libraries’ Rhymetime sessions. 

These are held for parents and children aged from 0 up to two years. 

Rhymetime helps to familiarise babies and toddlers with the rhythms of language and incorporates simple movements and singing in a 30 minute session.

Parents are encouraged to join with their child to read simple stories, sing classic rhymes and enjoy finger puppet play.

Rhymetime has been running at Tura Marrang, Bega and Bermagui Library on different days at 10am.

They have become a great way for parents of young children to get together and make new friends. 

Council is hoping to start Rhymetime at Eden library very soon. Anyone who would like to participate in a regular Rhymetime session at Eden Library is asked to register their interest by ringing 6499 2451.
