Storytelling Sessions

p5, p6 students and teacher

Join the library as a member to enjoy storytelling events. Our storytelling events are very popular among children. Sit anywhere in the library and enjoy watching the storyteller articulate and even act out scenes from popular fiction and new titles. Our library’s event space will come to live with amazing decorations. Students get to learn creative phrases and vocabulary during the storytelling session. It’s also wonderful to get free souvenirs at the end of each session – related to the stories.

On 3 June (1030 am), join us as we bring you into an imaginary world of creative fiction. This month, enjoy the plot twist towards the end of the story of The Shopkeeper and The Witch by Thomas Baldwin. Participate in the quiz and win prizes!

Book Cover Art Contest

On 20 May (10 am), join us on an artistic journey as we bring book covers to live by creating our desired artistic rendition of popular book titles.
An illustrator creates content to visually interact with an audience. An illustrated book cover design conveys the message of writing. A picture paints a thousand words, so you’ll get to learn how to depict a story through art. Bring along your own colouring or painting materials and have fun. You’ll never know – you may be the BIG winner of this unique contest!
