Rhymetime is a fun way to share action rhymes, finger plays, songs and stories which help build language and literacy skills. Rhymetime is aimed at 0 - 2 year olds, but all children are welcome.
Storytime is held in the library to introduce toddlers and pre-schoolers to the joys of reading. Each session is followed by simple craft activities.
Learning with Storytime
These sessions focus on developing early literacy skills through stories, rhymes and craft activities.
STEAM For Toddlers
Children can engage, explore, discover and learn through STEAM - Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths. STEAM is a way of learning through play that encourages children to question and talk about the world around them.
Join our Reading Challenge to help in your child’s early literacy development and collect prizes along the way! This challenge is for children aged 0-5. Collect a reading log from a Mandurah Libraries branch.

Every year during May a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian, is read simultaneously across the country. Get involved by attending an event at one of the Mandurah Libraries!
