Children’s Book Week
Friday 18 August to Friday 25 August 2017
Children’s Book Week is an exciting week at the library where we celebrate excellent literature written for children by and in Australia. It’s a time when we get to celebrate reading, literacy, and books which are three things we are very passionate about at the library. So come and join us and celebrate Children’s Book Week. The theme this year is…Escape to Everywhere and books will certainly help us do that.
Join us at your favourite Pram Jam session for songs, rhymes, and a look at one of this year’s Notable books.
