Libraries ACT – Interactive Story Time

Page content:

Canberra Theatre Centre in conjunction with Libraries ACT are conducting free interactive story times during the 2019 season.

This is a great opportunity for kids and their parents to reacquaint themselves, or even discover these children’s stories before seeing the shows live on stage! During each session there will be interactive readings from passages of the books followed by an activity. All of these interactive story times are FREE but bookings are essential to secure your spot. Simply just go to the “What’s On” page on the Libraries ACT web site and select the event and location you’re interested in to secure your spot.


For more than 30 years, Mem Fox’s Possum Magic has captivated and enchanted young people all over Australia. Grandma Poss loves making magic. She makes wombats blue and kookaburras pink. She makes dingoes smile and emus shrink. But one day, when danger arrives in the form of a snake, Grandma uses her most magical spell to make Hush invisible. Possum Magic takes us on a whimsical journey to cities around Australia to find the food that makes Hush visible again. Joined by an extraordinary creative team, Monkey Baa brings to life the characters, journey and love that has made Possum Magic the most-loved and best-selling Australian picture book of all time.
