Simultaneous Storytime out of this world!

Young families and local school children joined the fun of National Simultaneous Storytime ­on Wednesday at Castlemaine Library as libraries across the region celebrated Australia’s biggest storytelling session! The same book was read at venues across Australia and New Zealand at the same time.
This year’s book was Philip Bunting’s Give Me Some Space! a delightful story that expertly merges non-fiction facts with imaginative play and was proudly read by special guest Cr Rosie Annear.
Children also enjoyed some songs packed with space facts with Castlemaine librarian Stuart Winser.
