Because lots of children are back at school, kindy or daycare now that we’ve entered Level 2, we thought we’d change up some of our virtual events to suit people’s new schedules! So, our beloved Virtual Storytimes will now just be happening three times a week (on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10.30am, and Saturdays at 2.00pm), rather than six — but we’re also adding some special evening Bedtime Storytimes to help send you off gently to dreamland!
Every evening at 7.30pm, we’ll be sharing a few chapters from some of our favourite chapter books for you to listen to and enjoy as you snuggle in with your teddies. Our first Bedtime Storytime is happening over on the Wellington City Libraries Facebook page tonight, and will feature The Great Piratical Rumbustification by Margaret Mahy, illustrated by Quentin Blake.
Join us nightly at 7.30pm for our special Bedtime Storytimes!
Feel free to tune in at 7.30pm each night, or you can catch the videos after they premiere in our special Bedtime Storytime playlist on Facebook.
I love listening to a good story! There are many ways to listen: cassette tape, CD, IPOD. You can even listen to video story-times on the internet! You probably already know about our library’s online story-time, but did you know that the Screen Actor’s Guild of America have produced an online story-time too? Stories on the Story Online website are read by famous actors. For example, Lord of The Rings stars Elijah Wood and Sean Austin both read a story. How cool is that?!
Hey guys did you know that you can download stories to listen to onto your computer, burn it to a CD, or load it onto your ipod or mp3 player? Check it out…..it’s free and exciting!
Do you like listening to stories on the internet? The Radio New Zealand website has a whole bunch of New Zealand stories that you can download and listen to. You should check it out some time!
Check out the downloads page at /kids/downloads.html to view our new online story I am so handsome, and then tell us who you think is the handsomest of all!
