Storytelling at the Mitchell Library

This week's storytelling for the under fives -- held at the Mitchell Library and organised by our librarian Glenda and her volunteers Barb and Doug -- centred around the story "The Gingerbread Man".

Sam the puppet and Billy Bilby (both worked by Doug) entertained the children and brought forth many laughs and smiles. Likewise, action songs.

Six large gingerbread men (baked by Barb) were shared between the children. This regular event introduces outback children to books and the library, as well as providing important socialisation for mothers and children alike, many of whom live in remote areas.
