As part of Central Coast Library Week, the second Parker the Platypus book, Parker Visits the Library, will be launched.

The book aims to be a fun and engaging story for children, promoting the resources and programs at local libraries. During the week, Parker will be visiting Council’s Education and Care Centres and attending select storytime sessions. These include Woy Woy Library from 10:30 am on May 21 and Umina Library from 10:30 am on May 31. Free copies of his book will be given to children at all baby time, toddler time and storytime sessions during Library Week, to encourage a love of reading and help develop literacy skills. Parents of children at Council’s Education and Care Centres are encouraged to contact their centre for more information.
