This year NSS takes place on Wednesday 27 May 2020 at 11:00am and the book is Whitney and Britney Chicken Divas written and illustrated by Lucinda Gifford.
Everyone can join NSS, it doesn’t matter whether you are at home, a school, a public library or even a university library!
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 20th 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.

This year, of course, the Library cannot invite our local kindergartens to our usual fun morning of books and activities in the Curriculum Collection (Kelvin Grove). We will miss seeing our kindy friends in person – instead we’ll be visiting the children online to read the book. We’ll all be wearing our bling and feather boas!
