Gerringong Library runs a story time program for toddlers and preschool-age children on the first Thursday of every month. This is held between 10.30 am and 11.15 am, and includes themed songs, rhymes, craft and, of course, lots of stories. The dates of these story times can be found each month on the ‘What’s On’ column of the Gerringong Village Whispers. There is no need to book, just come along and join in the fun!
And don't forget to visit our street library outside the Gerringong Town Hall, where we have a variety of books available for adults and children that you can access any time.
With Gerringong’s increasing population, Kiama Council has recognised the need to expand the library service in Gerringong.
The development has been approved and we are anticipating construction starting soon. The new building on Blackwood Street will be a combination library, museum, display space and community meeting rooms. Constructed on the site of the current School of Arts building and Gerringong Museum, the new plan incorporates the existing heritage-listed elements into a multi-focus community space.
