Book Week!

Posted: August 19, 2011 in Events

The Children’s Book Council of Australia’s annual Book Week is, according to the internet, the oldest children’s festival in Australia: this is its 65th year!  Book Week officially starts next week but here in the library we couldn’t wait, and are beginning our celebration of the wonderful world of books and reading right now.  This year’s theme is ‘One World, Many Stories’.

We are doing a few different things to celebrate Book Week this year.  Next Friday we are having a visit from the Sun Bookshop, who will be setting up a stall in the library at lunchtime for your browsing pleasure.  We are also running our inaugural Book Week Scrabble Tournament, in which teams of two will compete for ultimate Scrabble supremacy.  In the spirit of celebration, we have also filled the reading area with helium balloons, which students are welcome to take home at the end of the day.  Because nothing is more educational than balloons!
