Join us at Cowra Library for an incredible Australia-wide event – National Simultaneous Storytime!

Everyone will be reading Bowerbird Blues by Australian author and illustrator Aura Parker!!! on the same day, at the same time across Australia!

This lyrical story follows the journey of a bowerbird on his quest for all things blue, all the while feeling that something is amiss in his life. The bowerbird’s collection dominated by plastic caps, straws and tags invites reflection on environmental pollution and its challenges.

We will all be sharing the story on Wednesday 22 May at 12 noon with a special guest paramedic!!! All welcome – come along. 

National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) is held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA). Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator, is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, family day cares, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country.

Now in its 24th successful year, it is a colourful, vibrant, fun event that aims to promote the value of reading and literacy.
