ImageAs part of the First 5 Forever early childhood literacy program Sunshine Coast Council is taking the mobile library on playdates to parks across the region.

Community Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay said the mobile library playdates program aims to make a visit to the library easy and fun.

“Each visit will include a storytelling session, games, dress ups and a lot of fun for toddlers and their caregivers,” Cr McKay said.

“Everyone is invited to visit the mobile library to borrow books or register for their free library membership.

“There are three free mobile library storytelling sessions for the community to choose from. No bookings are required however teddy bears, hats and picnic blankets are a must.”

To get involved head to one of the following free Sunshine Coast Libraries sessions:

Cotton Tree Park, The Esplanade, Cotton Tree: Monday, August 22, 9.30am - 11am
