Every year the Lithgow Library Learning Centre participates in the national campaign to encourage more young Australians to read and enjoy books. In libraries all across Australia, the same book will be read at the same time to thousands of children.
This year, “The Brothers Quibble”, which addresses the issue of sibling rivalry, has been chosen as the simultaneous story time reading. It is written by Aaron Blabey, the author of many well-loved, award-winning children’s picture books including Pearl Barley and Charlie Parsley, The Ghost of Miss Annabel Spoon and the best-selling Pig the Pug.
Come along to the Lithgow Library in Main Street on Wednesday 27 May for Story Time and take part in this nationwide event. We will begin with singing and craft at 10.30am, then Lithgow City Council Mayor Maree Statham is reading the story at 11.00am.
“This is a fun activity that brings together people from all parts of Australia in a common cause, their children’s early literacy. I encourage families to come along,” says Mayor Maree Statham.
Providing a range of quality exhibitions and community programs that offer educational and social opportunities for all members of the community is part of Council’s Caring for the Community Strategy in the Community Strategic Plan 2026.
