3 2 1… Blast Off to Children’s Book Week!


Books from the 2013 shortlist

Children’s Book Week 2013 rocketed into Mt Gravatt library recently, and Library & IT Help staff took part by creating displays and activities to celebrate this year’s theme: Reading Across the Universe.

The display utilised books from the Mt Gravatt curriculum collection and was aimed at highlighting the importance of Children’s Book Week for students studying Primary Education.

Story time with Miss Jana

Jana ran story time sessions and craft activities with kids from the Old Yarranlea State School, which offered an opportunity to strengthen the library’s relationship with the on-campus school. It also gave library staff the chance to rediscover their inner children, as they made and launched balloon rockets with the kids!
