There will be heaps of Christmassy crafts to do too, so come along and help us decorate our tree!

We'll have lots of christmas stories and songs and an extra special guest!


Surprise visitors at storytime
  • Storytime is every weekday at Karori Library at 10:30am in the children's area
  • Storytime runs for about half an hour, with stories and songs
  • Pre-school storytimes are fun and free - there's no charge, and you don't have to book
  • Storytime is aimed at pre-school age children (three and four years old) - but younger siblings are always welcome!

Come along - we'd love to see you there!

The picture on the the right just goes to show that you never know who will turn up to storytime! (Taken at a special storytime where children were introduced to 5 day old baby chicks.)

Storytime favourite reads

We asked our storytime librarians to share with us some of their favourite books, and here they are:

Amazon book cover How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight?
By Jane Yolen

Read all about the different ways a dinosaur can say goodnight, from slamming his tail and pouting to giving a big hug and kiss!
Amazon book cover Annie's Chair
By Deborah Niland

Annie loves her chair so much she wants to keep it all to herself! Will she ever learn to share?
Amazon book cover Pants
By Giles Andreae and Nick Sharratt

Big and frilly, small and silly, let's see what sort of pants you see in this fun book.
Amazon book cover Slinky Malinki
By Lynley Dodd

Black and curious is Slinky Malinki. A rhyming account of the night this adventurous cat goes thieving and becomes entangled in his ill-gotten gains.

Coffee in the library

Food and drink

The library includes a cafe, Arobake on the Square - and you are welcome to bring your food and drink from the cafe (be it a BLT or coffee and cake) through into the library to relax in our comfy armchairs.
