National Simultaneous Story Time
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, family day cares, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country.
This year's book is Bowerbird Blues by Aura Parker, an award-winning illustrator, writer and designer. Everyone will go home with a gift pack with an activity sheet, bookmark, and stickers.

Bowerbird Blues stars a beautiful bowerbird on the search for (you guessed it) BLUE! It’s a moving story of longing and connection, that unfolds as the bowerbird’s search sends him soaring across the sea, sky and city. He swoops and snatches vibrant treasures for his collection, and soon his bower – a mix of natural and unnatural objects – attracts something greater and more fulfilling than he could ever have imagined.
Parents and caregivers must remain with children at all time.
Parents do not need to book tickets, just book on behalf of children.
