Moreton Bay Region Libraries
Learning is fun at Moreton Bay Region Libraries
Moreton Bay Region Libraries have a mass of free events and activities for all age groups. There are sixteen libraries spread throughout the Moreton Bay area along with one mobile branch and library express.

Membership for all Council libraries is free. After joining, you'll have free access to all the library resources including books, magazines, CDs, DVDs, public access computers, activities, workshops, events and more.

As a parent, assisting in the development of your child's reading and communication skills is paramount. Each of the free activities listed below are geared towards doing just that. Spend time learning together as a family and enjoy forming new friendships with other mums and dads.

Baby Rhyme Time
Through various interactive methods such as action songs, finger plays, rhythm and rhymes, you and your baby together will develop the necessary skills needed to aid their language, pre-reading and communication skills. The Baby Rhyme Time sessions are recommended as an introduction to the popular Storytime sessions (see below).

Moreton Bay Region Libraries
Baby Rhyme Time sessions are held every week in ten of the Moreton Bay library branches. They are Albany Creek, Arana Hills, Burpengary, Caboolture, Deception Bay, Kallangur, Narangba, North Lakes, Redcliffe and Strathpine. Days and times vary for each library branch and no bookings are required.

Storytime
Moreton Bay Region Libraries
At Storytime have fun with your child and other parents reading storybooks and singing songs. Open your child's eyes to the wonderful world of reading and books.

Storytime sessions are held every week in twelve of the Moreton Bay library branches. They are Albany Creek, Arana Hills, Bribie Island, Burpengary, Caboolture, Deception Bay, Kallangur, Narangba, North Lakes, Redcliffe, Strathpine and Woodford library. Days and times vary for each library branch and no bookings are required.

Pyjama Storytime
The Pyjama Storytime sessions are similar to the normal storytime sessions, however, they are held in the evening. Your child can come along dressed in their pyjamas and the libraries recommend they bring along some of their night time comforts like a blanket and their favourite fluffy toy.

Pyjama Storytime sessions are held every week in five of the Moreton Bay library branches. They are Arana Hills, Narangba, North Lakes, Redcliffe and Strathpine. Days and times vary for each library branch and no bookings are required.

Your Comment
Logan Libraries offer a similar program throughout the year.
Activities are separated in Little kids, primary school kids and teens (as well as activities for adults and seniors).
I especially like the school holiday programs. These include Special Effects, Movie making, art classes, dance classes, etc.
However, you need to book for some of these events and you often need to get in early as the places find up quickly.
