The Storytime Forever event will be held at TYTO Parklands from 10am – 1pm Tuesday 4 April, with the Hinchinbrook Baby Welcoming Ceremony beginning at 11am.

Councillor Mary Brown has said, ‘Storytime Forever will be a wonderful event for young children and their families’.

‘By directly supporting parents and caregivers in providing key language and literacy skills to our region's under 5's, Hinchinbrook Shire Library staff are actively supporting the intellectual growth of our future community members’.

At the Hinchinbrook Baby Welcoming Ceremony Councillors will present babies and their families with a gift bag containing a personalised certificate, sapling and surprise. With the intention that families will plant the sapling to commemorate their new baby and watch as they both grow toward the future of the Hinchinbrook Shire.
