Staff at the five libraries will also host reading hours, and kids are encouraged to dress up as their favourite Australian book character.

“I also encourage the wider community to visit the libraries during August to see the fantastic displays created by our staff to promote the event. It is so heartening to see children’s faces light up at these displays year after year,” says Mayor Russell Aubrey.

Free evening sessions with Glenn Swift are from 5.30 – 6.30pm but need a booking. They’re on August 22 at Civic Square library, August 23 at AH Bracks library, and August 25 at Bull Creek library.
