National Simultaneous Storytime

National Simultaneous Story time is held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association. Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country.
NSS receives positive media coverage, generates a great deal of community interest and is held annually as part of Library and Information Week.
In 2015 over 500,000 children at over 3,100 locations across Australia took part in National Simultaneous Storytime, reading the book The Brothers Quibble, written and illustrated by Aaron Blabey.
 This year NSS takes place on Wednesday 25 May at 11am  and we would love it if you could join us at the Karumba Library and Information Centre and sharing I Got This Hat written by Jol and Kate Temple and illustrated by Jon Foye.
There will be activities, such as colour-in, fun quizzes. A prize for the best hat.
