Learning parties: He Whakangahau Kōrero

Learning parties complement our Ready for Reading packs that are given to all children at four. Whether you are a parent or an early childhood group or centre we can arrange for our Outreach librarian to come and host a learning party. We will present stories and Ready for reading packs to the children and teach you how to play fun games together that encourage early literacy skills - with balloons, stickers and stamps for extra fun. Find out more about Learning parties.
