Storytimes and Kids Programs

Yarra Libraries supports early literacy development through the delivery of preschool programs, including Storytime, Babytime and Rhymetime. These programs are held weekly during school term. We also help to foster a love of learning with regular after-school programs, covering STEM subjects, arts and creativity, and free school holiday programs.

During the temporary closure, we're creating videos of our storytellers and librarians reading some of their favourite books and singing familiar songs, and sharing online resources that can help your children maintain literacy and a love of reading and learning while at home.
