Join us on the lawn at Forby Sutherland Memorial Garden for a special outdoor storytime with songs, rhymes and stories.

Join us on the lawn at Forby Sutherland Memorial Gardens as we celebrate the re-launch of Books Before School with songs, rhymes and stories for pre-schoolers and their families to enjoy together.

Books Before School is our wonderful early literacy program designed to help children hit the ground running when they start school by getting them engaged with books and excited about reading. With the very achievable goal of reading 1000 books before starting school, this program encourages families to read books regularly with their children aged 0 to 6.
