Storytimes and Kids Programs

Yarra Libraries supports early literacy development through the delivery of preschool programs, including Storytime, Babytime and Rhymetime.
These sessions are held during school term only.
(Term 1 programs start from Monday 3 February 2020).

We also collect a wide range of educational and recreational resources for young and emerging readers and help to foster a love of learning with regular after-school programs, covering arts & craft, creative writing and technology/robotics.
