FUN: The Whyalla Library's Pre-School Story Time has been a hit with local kids.

The Whyalla Public Library’s Pre-School Story Time continues to be popular with the little ones.

The pre-schoolers recently had an animal of a time at the library as they read the Mem Fox classic Hattie and the Fox.

They then sang Old MacDonald, Giddiup, Dingle Dangle Scarecrow and Baa Baa Black Sheep. There was even time to share in some birthdays with Happy Birthday sung a few times.

After the reading, it was time for some craft with some sneaky foxes coming out of the bushes.

Pre-School Story Time is a program for 2-5-year-olds to share stories, songs and craft activities.

Parents are caregivers are welcome to assist as their child develops a love of books and participates in fun activities in the supportive environment of the library.

Each week there is a different theme for the story and the activity and sometimes there’s even a special visitor.

There is also a toy library at the far end of the children’s library for those that want to stay on a bit longer.

There is a wide range of toys, games, musical instruments and kits catering for the early learning, recreational and development needs of pre-school children. You can also borrow two items for two weeks.

The sessions last about 45 minutes and they are held during the school terms on Wednesday and Thursday 10.30am and also 2pm on Thursday. For more information, give the library a call on 8645 7891.
