Children’s Book Week 2015 Wrap-Up

Children’s Book Week was enormous!
We had 1,118 people engaged in the activities we had for Children’s Book Week.

We had 176 children at Storytime over five sessions.
263 babies, toddlers, and their parents at Pram Jam over four sessions.
239 children were visited in school or community centres for Outreach.
284 adults and children went hunting at Phoenix Shopping Centre and Spearwood Library or the Cockburn Health & Community Facility as part of the Word Scramble and Book Hunt competitions.

Our Word Scramble competition, which ran between Spearwood Library and Phoenix Shopping Centre, had 55 entries. A big thank you to Phoenix Shopping Centre for being involved again this year.
