City of Palmerston


You're never too young to enjoy reading. Babies absorb information and react to sound and touch and the voice of their loved ones reading to them.

Nurserytime involves songs, puppets, nursery rhymes and movement chosen specifically to enhance your baby's early literacy development. We encourage parents/carers to get a library card for their child so that they can select books to take home after attending program sessions.

When babies turn 1 year old they then graduate to Storytime - special graduation ceremonies are held at various times throughout the year. The Nurserytime sessions are suitable for children aged 0-1 year.

Nurserytime is held every Wednesday 10:00am - 10:45am.


Say goodbye to quiet libraries - this is when things get noisy! Join our KAT team and sing, dance, listen to stories and engage with puppets for our fun and interactive Storytime sessions. Children must be accompanied by an adult. The Storytime sessions are suitable for children aged 1-5 years.

Storytime is held every Tuesday and Thursday 10:00am-10:45am.

The Frillies Club

Become a member of the Frillies Club today. The Frillies Club is for preschool to Year 4 students. The club aims to assist every child who is a member in the Palmerston area to develop a life-long love of reading and encourage them to join their local library. Every time members visit the library and borrow, the library staff will stamp their log book. When three stamps have been collected they will get to take a lucky dip from the Freckles the Frilly box in the library.

We look forward to seeing Frillies Club members when they come into the library.
