Find­ing trea­sure in books

Eastern Reporter - - Front Page -

KIDS can chan­nel their in­ner pirates while find­ing trea­sure at the City of Bayswa­ter’s li­braries to cel­e­brate Chil­dren’s Book Week from Au­gust 18 to 24.

In line with this year’s theme ‘find your trea­sure’, Bayswa­ter, May­lands and Mor­ley li­braries will host pi­rate-themed par­ties on Au­gust 25.

There will be face paint­ing, pi­rate sto­ries, crafts and prizes for the best­dressed.

Mayor Dan Bull said hun­dreds of stu­dents would visit the li­braries for school

ex­cur­sions or with their fam­i­lies and friends.

“Amidst all the ex­cite­ment, Book Week is the

ideal time to teach chil­dren the value and re­spon­si­bil­ity of hav­ing their own li­brary card,” he said.
