Auckland Libraries: Storytime

Storytime

Wā takinga paki

Come along to our popular Storytimes where librarians, and sometimes, authors or other special guests read captivating stories. Storytime is ideal for kids three to five years of age.

Some libraries offer Storytime in languages other than English. Sessions are usually 30 minutes and most run during the school term only.

Christmas and summer holiday timetables may differ. Please contact your library for more information.

Tamariki, parents and caregivers are welcome! Find a session in your area.
