National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) is held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA). Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator, is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country.

Now in its 18th successful year, it is a colourful, vibrant, fun event that aims to promote the value of reading and literacy, using an Australian children's book that explores age-appropriate themes, and addresses key learning areas of the National Curriculum for Foundation to Year 6.

Come to National Simultaneous Storytime at Logan City Council Libraries.

Join thousands of children across Australia and New Zealand for a special reading of Hickory Dickory Dash written by Tony Wilson and illustrated by Laura Wood. Recommended for children 2 to 5 years.

National Simultaneous Storytime is held during Library and Information Week. Share these books about libraries with your children.
