First 5 For­ever “What’s in the egg?” is run­ning to­day from 10.30–11.30am for chil­dren un­der six years.

Can­non­vale li­brar­ian Sharon Lam en­cour­aged the com­mu­nity to come along for sto­ries, songs, ac­tiv­i­ties and, most im­por­tantly, “to find out what is in­side the egg”.

“First 5 For­ever en­cour­ages so­cial in­ter­ac­tions and play, it’s a lot of fun,” Ms Lam said.

“These hol­i­days we have had a fan­tas­tic re­sponse to our pro­grams and even been booked out.”
