Storytimes

Woman reads a story to a group of children

The Storytime programs at Hume libraries are designed to support the literacy development of children between 0 to 5 years. 

Our early years schedule will be a bit different during the school holidays. Check the handy pull out calendar(PDF, 650KB) in our What’s On brochure to see what activities are on for your children.

Dad's Storytime

Give mum a sleep-in and bring the kids to the library! Dad's Storytime is a great way to meet other dads in Hume, swap parenting tips, bond with your kids, and be an amazing reading role model.
