How great is this? Onkaparinga Libaries will be delivering Auslan Interpreted sessions of their Toddlertime (18m-3 yrs) & Storytime (3-5yrs) session across March – July 2022!

“Having the Auslan interpreters at our Storytime and Toddlertime sessions will provide an opportunity for the Deaf community and the Hard of Hearing community to participate and will provide equal access to literacy and communication for all community members.”  said Woodcroft Library Team Leader, Kathrin Davidson.

The sessions will also be recorded & added to the online library so you can access them at home.

Storytime and Toddlertime are fun, interactive sessions designed to encourage a love of reading for children using stories, nursery rhymes and activities. To find out when & where the Auslan sessions will take place, have a look at the City Of Onkaparinga’s latest newsletter.
