Library Week 2019

Join us for one of our most loved events of the year, Library Week!

From August 19-August 23 we will head to a different library everyday, reading one English storybook and two of another language. 

Library Week is a celebration of culture, language, creativity, community and friendship.

Each storytime will be bilingual. We will feature different languages, as well as stories read in English. 

We are looking for volunteers to read this years featured book We're Going On a Bear Hunt in a foreign language in one of the time slots below:

Glenroy Library
Monday August 19 10:30am- 12:00pm

Bendigo Library
Tuesday August 20 10:30am- 12:00pm

Preston Library
Wednesday August 21 10:30am- 12:00pm

Ballarat Library
Thursday August 22 10:30am- 12:00pm

Boroondara/Glen Eira Area TBC
Friday August 23 10:30am- 12:00pm

Volunteers receive a hamper from Playgroup Victoria as a thank you for taking part.

If this piques your interest, we would love to hear from you! Write and let us know which library you would like to read at and in what language. There will be an audience and lots of wiggly and giggly children so please know this will be a playful storytime with lots of interaction.
