On Tuesday and Thursday mornings the Palmerston Library breaks all the usual conventions of silence in the library. The sounds of kids’ singing echoes throughout as they are led Pied Piper-like by the librarians in 30-45 minutes of fun. Singing merges into dancing and is interspersed with storytime. It’s aimed at littlies and toddlers and most seem to really enjoy it. Most of the kids have a whale of a time, as do the parents and librarians -not so sure about the people trying to use the library computers. This is a fantastic grounding for encouraging kids to love reading.
Obviously I can’t take photos of the kids so I’m including a photo of the bus which does the kids in the park theme, mainly in the Dry Season (which has now officially commenced for 2012 -probably explains why we’ve had big storms the last few days?).
