Come along and enjoy this special time with your little ones. No bookings are necessary. You are welcome to stay and enjoy the children’s activites that follow at 11am where stories and related craft activities are available for pre-schoolers.

Berri Library holds weekly Rhyme Time, Storytime and Children’s Activities every Thursday (during school term times) at 10.30am. These sessions are free and the first part of each session is aimed at babies from newborn to two years with the later part of each session aimed at children, 5 years old and under.  All sessions include interactive songs, a story and activity and children will require the assistance of a parent or carer.  The latest programme can be found on our Facebook page or from the Berri or Barmera Libraries.
