On Wednesday 26th May 2010 to celebrate Library and Information Week, the Spearwood Library invited the Mayor of the City of Cockburn, Logan Howlett, to the National Simultaneous Storytime. Little White Dogs Can’t jump! by Bruce Whatley and Rosie Smith was the chosen book. What a great story! Dogs and skateboards! The mayor bought along some of his childhood friends and enjoyed a few pet stories with the audience. Many of the mums and dads enjoyed the story as much as the children. The Mayor even wore a designer T-shirt for the occasion!

This year National Simultaneous Storytime was held at over 1000 places all over Australia at the same time, 11am today.
