Ten Minutes a Day…. again!


The Ten Minutes a Day program first ran at the Coffs Library towards the end of last year and was such a success it has been put on again, with a number of workshop times and dates available. We think this is a fantastic program and encourage any parent with a baby under the age of 2 years to participate. It will most certainly help your babies have an appreciation for books from an early age.

The following information was taken from the Coffs Regional Library website:

Ten Minutes a Day – Baby Book Time Workshops are specifically designed for parents and their babies, 2 years and under. The program is designed to give parents an opportunity to share and experience the love of reading with their baby. The program will also give parents practical ideas for using stories, rhymes, songs and music to help babies develop early literacy skills.

          Workshops run for a series of 4 weeks 

          Each session runs for 30 minutes

          Sessions are followed by light refreshments

          Sessions provide an opportunity to meet other new parents, and are limited to 9 babies and their parent.

          Workshops 3 – Starts Tuesday March 1st – for four consecutive Tuesdays (1st – 22nd March)
