LIBRARIES may have a reputation of being quiet places for study, where it is all work and no play.
However, that certainly isn't the case early in the mornings of Tuesday and Friday at the Stawell Library.
At 10.30am every Thursday and Friday, the Stawell Library hosts its Storytime program, where children can go and have fun while learning vital English skills for later in life.
Library Manager, Kerry Wilson, said she was pleased with the turnout to these events.
"We average about 15-20 kids each Storytime," Ms Wilson said.
"We usually start with a 'rhyme time' song, which are usually nursery rhymes that the kids sing along to. Then we read them a story and we finish up with a craft activity that relates to the story somehow."
The children of Stawell are loving these activities, and lucky for them, there are many activity days coming up on the school holidays.
Activities being conducted at the Stawell Library throughout the school holidays are:
Friday, July 4 at 2.30pm, Loom bands and finger knitting ($2 and B.Y.O loom bands if you have them).
Tuesday, July 8 at 2.30pm, Create a winter landscape ($2).
Friday, July 11 at 5pm, Bedtime Story (Free, come in PJ's and bring teddy for a story before bed).
Storytime will also run as normal throughout the holidays.
