National Simultaneous Storytime

There are lots of events happening as part of Library & Information Week and tomorrow is National Simultaneous Storytime. This year’s title is The very cranky bear by Nick Bland. ALIA have a range of resources on their website to support NSS, including the AUSLAN version (below) of the story being read. If you’d like to get involved, you can find your nearest storytime location in the Australia wide list here.
