Prospect Library is for residents of all ages, and as such we offer a range of activities specifically designed for kids. All children should be encouraged to read from a young age, and a fun library environment can be the best way to introduce them to reading.
Our children's activities include Story Time for pre-schoolers, Rhyme Time for babies and toddlers, the 1001 Books Before School program, and school holiday programs.
Every Friday at 11am pre-schoolers are invited to join us at the library for a storytelling and craft session. There’s no need to book for Story Time, but come early for a good seat.
Rhyme Time for Babies and Toddlers
Thursday mornings at 11am we run Rhyme Time for babies and toddlers. A great way to stimulate your young one with nursery rhymes, singing, and musical instruments. Bookings aren’t required.
1001 Books Before School program
Commonly accepted as one of the most valuable activities you can do to set your child up for success, reading aloud with your children also helps parents and children form stronger bonds and affection. It also encourages children to develop a life-long love of reading. The 1001 Books Before School program is a great way for families to participate in shared reading experiences at a young age, before the transition to school.
