Read Grow Inspire

Celebrate Book Week at Wyndham City Libraries

Join us for a celebration of reading, characters, Australian children’s authors and illustrators and all things books. This year’s theme is READ GROW INSPIRE.

Scavenger hunts will be happening at all branches all week, and our Design a Library Bookmark Competition opens 21 August so it’s time to get creative!

If you like dressing up, why not come to the library dressed up as one of your favourite book characters? You may even see a few book characters in the library too!
