Stig Wemyss to launch Book Week

The importance of books and Australian authors and illustrators will be recognised and applauded during the Bland Shire Library’s upcoming Children’s Book Week celebrations commencing on August 19
The Bland Shire Library has invited the local schools to attend a special Book Week launch at the Services and Citizen Club starting at 10.30am on August 19 at which Stig Wemyss, a well known actor, comedian and audio book narrator, will be presenting a show focusing on reading and literature.
Book Week is always a highlight at the Bland Shire Library and this year is no exception. Library staff  will have their party hats on and will be running a series of events including displays and competitions with prizes. All the local schools have been invited to visit the library and participate in readings and fun activities. All the school entries received will be on display at the library.
The library will host a special Book Week, Book at Bed Time on Thursday, August 22 at 6pm.
Library staff are encouraging children to come dressed in their pyjamas and bring along their teddy bear. Bookings are not required.  Book at bedtime is suitable for preschool and kindergarten aged children.
Due to class visits during Book Week, the library will be suspending story time on Thursday August 22 and Baby Bounce on August 23. These sessions will resume the following week.
