Victoria Gardens is pleased to support Yarra Libraries in launching an exciting project on 25 May.  The Million Stories Project is a partnership with Alice Springs Libraries which will aim to capture and acknowledge the stories and books that are shared with children in the City of Yarra and throughout the Northern Territory.  Aiming for a story a day for every child, Yarra Libraries want to spread the message that every story, every book, every rhyme and song shared with a child promotes language and brain development, feeds the imagination, nurtures curiosity and wonder, and stimulates a love of reading and learning.

This public launch is to coincide with the National Simultaneous Storytime.  This is an annual event held throughout Australia, this year on Wednesday 25 May at 11am,  the same book, “I Got this Hat” by Jol and Kate Temple, will be read in libraries, preschools, schools and public events throughout the country.
