This week was Book Week and the Parkes Library celebrated this annual event during Storytime on Wednesday with the staff and kids getting dressed up as one of their favourite characters.
This year’s theme is ‘Curious Creatures, Wild Minds’, and on Wednesday a special guest came in to read to the kids.
Cr Bill Jayet first got the help from the kids to get out some special dress up gear from his treasure bag before he read Jungle Grumble, one of the books selected for this year’s celebration.
Each year since 1945 The Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) has brought children and books together across Australia through CBCA Book Week. During this time schools and public libraries celebrate books and Australian children’s authors and illustrators.
