Library news and events
Now is the time of year to have a spring clean and rescue those forgotten books or DVDs and get them all back to the library. Just return them to any City of Rockingham Library, no questions asked, nothing to pay.
What's happening at your local library? For more activities, visit the City's What's On events calendar.

Sing with Me
The State Library’s literacy program, Better Beginnings, has been successfully catering to babies and pre-schoolers for several years. Now, two year olds will be able to join in the fun with their own specially created Sing With Me pack. City of Rockingham Libraries are excited to offer the new bags that focus on sharing well-known nursery rhymes to develop an early love of literacy.
Each pack comes in a bright orange backpack and includes a Sing With Me booklet, a music CD, fridge magnets, and ‘Knick Knack Bushwack’, a beautiful book by Mandy Foot. Made possible with the support of Rio Tinto, the program promotes the key message that parents are their children’s first teacher, and encourages parents and carers to read and sing to their children every day.
