Celebrating Book Week 2021

Each year across Australia, the Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) brings children and books together celebrating Book Week, 21 to 27 August 2021. During this time schools, libraries, booksellers, authors, illustrators and children celebrate Australian children’s literature.

The CBCA Book Week theme for 2021 is Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds.

All this Book Week, at our regular storytimes, we will be performing Reader Theatre in which we will act out the book Norton and the bear by Gabriel Evans.
Do please join us.
