libraries by mamma knows west
Libraries are such a fantastic place to hang out with the family. They are warm in the winter - cool in the summer and perfect all year around! You can usually catch a rhymetime or storytime session at your local library and we try and get to as many as we can to check them and spend some quality time perusing, choosing the books and other resources available. Don't underestimate how awesome it is to get out of the house and enjoy these community treasures.
We haven't listed ALL of the libraries but these are just some of our faves.

Mamma loves a library! That is not a secret and this newish one in Tarneit is fantastic.
Mamma has never seen a library with a slide before. What a great idea.
FREE Babytime, Storytime, Twilight Tales and Rhymetimes are on each day. The new Werribee Plaza Library is big, bright and bursting with books! Mamma and the crew LURVE libraries and this one is no exception. It's just so roomy and if you have a pram a couple of kids in tow, well you need lots of room.
The spacious and neat children's area is a great place to sit and read, with the added bonus of plenty of room for prams and to wrangle kiddos. Mamma says if it's a nice day - grab a book and head outdoors to the courtyard and check out their reading igloo!
The easy-to-reach board book collection is excellent, providing peace of mind play for little hands and the extra comfy bright yellow beanbags are a bit cool.
As you may know, Mamma is a big fan of the local libraries and Yarraville Library is no exception with its bright, modern ambiance and plenty of room to read, play chess or grab a book to go.
If you love Lego as much as Mamma's lot be sure to check out Lego Club at West Footscray Library monthly on Tuesdays during the school term from 4pm to 5pm. Suitable for ages 5-12 yo. Upcoming 2015 dates 28th April, 26th May and 23rd June. Bookings not required.
Books near the beach, life doesn't get any better than this! There are oodles of books and lots of space with all the mod cons you'll need including computers, couches and a great area for your Little People, with has plenty of natural light next to an atrium with a Japanese garden.
Mamma knows you'll love the big collection of board books for your babes and the floor to ceiling windows let in natural light inviting you to stay for a while and enjoy this fantastic resource.
This is book heaven! Big and beautiful, this state-of-the-art library is overflowing with books and resources. More than just a library lovers dream, it's an impressive Westie gem that you and the kids can enjoy time and again.
