Children's Book Week 2017

Glenelg Libraries will be celebrating Children’s Book Week from Saturday 19 August to Saturday 26 August.

As part of Children’s Book Week, Glenelg Libraries will be facilitating and hosting a range of children’s activities and displays, inspired by the theme ‘Escape to Everywhere’.

BUNTING FLAGS

Glenelg Libraries will be showcasing bunting flags that show children’s illustrations and visualisations from inspirational books and their interpretations of ‘Escape to Everywhere’. Visit your local library to see and ‘escape’ to some of these magical and faraway lands!

‘TRAVEL TO’ TICKET

Glenelg Libraries will be offering children a very unique travel experience during this year’s Book Week with our ‘Travel to….’ tickets. Children and young people are invited to delve into the land of unknown when they select a ticket to a secret destination from our lucky dip. The ticket will reveal the destination that they are invited to escape to and the key to the book in which this destination lies. We wish you a safe and happy trip! 

‘ESCAPE TO EVERYWHERE’ ACTIVITY AFTERNOON

Children are invited to come along to the Portland Library to create a travel brochure and passport to escape to a wild, fabulous or fantastical destination of their choice. Come and create your escape on Thursday 24 August, from 4:15pm – 5:15pm at the Portland Library. Call 5522 2265 to register your child/ren. Places are limited.

SPECIAL TRAVEL THEMED STORYTIME

Join Abby on Friday 25 August at 11am for a special travel themed storytime.  Bring along something from your families travels to add to our magical suitcase during the session.

Children’s Book Week is an initiative of the Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA).  Each year, across Australia, The CBCA brings schools, libraries, booksellers, authors, illustrators and children to celebrate Australian children's literature.
