Auckland Libraries: Storytime

Storytime

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.

There are a few that also run through the school holidays and are marked with an asterisk.

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