Join us at the museum for the 2024 National Simultaneous Storytime! Local radio presenter, Emily 'MJ' Crawford from Toowoomba's Hit 100.7, will give a captivating live reading of this year's book, Bowerbird Blues by Aura Parker. 

After the reading, join in on a scavenger hunt to gather blue items and create your own bluebird bower. Don't forget to snap a selfie with our display bowerbird too!

This is a free event. Groups are encouraged to book via email.

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, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country.
