⚠️ Due to capacity limits and current COVID-19 restrictions, all early literacy programs and Yarra STEAM Labs will not run until further notice. Read more about our service changes due to COVID-19.
From July onwards, we'll be hosting our event registration pages on the Eventbrite platform. Web links will be updated, but you may notice a different booking experience from that time onwards and need to update any personal bookmarks to our old events page.
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 run a separate program of events during school holidays.
When our libraries are closed, you can access videos of our storytellers and librarians reading some of their favourite books and singing familiar songs, as well as online resources that can help your children maintain literacy and a love of reading and learning while at home.
