School hol­i­day fun

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

AS the weather warms, chil­dren are in­vited to the South Perth Li­brary for a range of cool ac­tiv­i­ties and events.

Sum­mer gets off to a fly­ing start at the Com­mu­nity Hall on De­cem­ber 7 with the Sto­ry­time Christ­mas Party. From 10.30am, pre-school-aged chil­dren are in­vited to hear sto­ries with the amaz­ing Glenn Swift and there may even be a visit by a spe­cial guest (Ho! Ho! Ho!).

This is a free event but book­ings are es­sen­tial for ca­ter­ing pur­poses.

Through­out Jan­uary the li­brary par­tic­i­pates in the Sum­mer Read­ing Club, a free on­line and in-li­brary hol­i­day pro­gram run in part­ner­ship with State Li­brary of Queensland, the Aus­tralian Li­brary and In­for­ma­tion As­so­ci­a­tion, and the Aus­tralian Pub­lic Li­brary Al­liance.

The pro­gram is aimed at keep­ing young read­ers in­spired through the hol­i­days and in­cludes a blog with Aus­tralian Chil­dren’s Lau­re­ate Leigh Hobbs and chil­dren’s au­thor Deborah Abela.
