National Simultaneous Storytime, now in its 12th successful year, is organised by the Australian Library and Information Association. Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author, is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country. In 2011 over 170,000 children at over 1,100 locations across Australia took part in National Simultaneous Storytime. NSS is an imprtant annual national literacy campaign that aims to promote the value of reading and literact.


This year NSS takes place on Wednesday 23 May at 11am and we would love it if you could join us by sharing 'The Very Cranky Bear' by Nick Bland published by Scholastic Australia.


Registering is free and we will have some great activities and resources available to support your National Simultaneous Storytime event.
