Children from the Yarraville Community Centre experienced an intergalactic storytime… from space!

As part of the National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) event, children at Yarraville Community Centre childcare were delighted by an intergalactic experience, enjoying story time read by astronaut Dr Shannon Walker from the International Space Station! For the first time ever, the official story by Australian author, Philip Bunting called, Give me some Space was read to over one million children across Australia and New Zealand simultaneously on Wednesday 19th May 2021. National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) is an annual event that aims to promote the value of literacy. “The Yarraville Community Centre is proud to support the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) in helping to engage children of all ages to enjoy books by creating a sense of excitement. This event offered the children a wonderful out of this world experience!” Narelle Rufus
