STORYTIME in Leeton is typically all about the youngsters who are starting out on their reading and learning journey.
However, while this was still the case at the library last week, there was something special about the sessions on Wednesday and Saturday.
To celebrate National Grandparents Day, the library held a unique morning for the shire’s grandparents and “grandfriends”.
Not only were the stories read specific to grandmas, grandpas, nans, nonnas, nonnos and every other form of grandparents, but the children were able to show how much they love their wise family members.
National Grandparents Day is officially held on October 28, but many events take place before or after the date.
The storytime sessions were also more special than usual with organisers wanting to find a way to thank the attending grandparents for all that they do.
There was morning tea for them to enjoy, as well as a photo booth to help capture special moments with their grandchildren.
The NSW government provided some funding for the event.
The aim of the day throughout the country each year is to celebrate the role grandparents and older people play in our society – both the things they have done, and the things they keep doing.
