Join National Library Education Manager, Ben Pratten, and special guest, Associate Professor at the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics at ANU, Dr. Charley Lineweaver, as they read Give me some space! for National Simultaneous Storytime 2021!

National Simultaneous Storytime is held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association. The event sees a picture book written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country.

The picture book for 2021 is Give me some space! by author and illustrator Philip Bunting.

Stick around after the reading for a chat about all things space from the Mt Stromlo Observatory.
