Kids’ fun at the Palmerston Library

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?).
