My First Library card – access to an exciting world

Sharing stories and rhymes at the library, as well as singing, talking and playing is not only a fun activity for little ones, but it also supports brain development.

Did you know that up to 90% of a child’s brain development happens in the first five years?

As a teacher, Rachel West is very familiar with the importance of reading. 

“Reading introduces the kids to new words, feelings and ideas. This helps them when they are communicating and investigating the world around them,” she says.

Beerwah Library hosts interactive Storytime and Rhymetime sessions, available every week and free to attend.

The West family are regular visitors to the Beerwah Library.

“Ada and Harvey love to play games together, picking books and looking through the books they’ve chosen in a snuggly spot,” says Mum Rachel.

“Harvey and Ada also love to read to their youngest sister, Lilah. Their book recommendations are any stories that look funny or silly. So, it’s great to have access to a wide variety of books, at the library, instead of reading the same ones over and over at home. It’s also a good way to spend some time on a rainy day.”
