Book Week 2016

The theme for Book Week 2016 has been announced – Australia: Story Country.

Australia - Story Country

Book Week 2016 will run from the 20 – 26 of August 2016. Shaun Tan has illustrated the artwork.

Australia is a pretty amazing country with some diverse stories to tell, so the 2016 theme will allow for a huge range of ideas, displays and costumes (I’m imagining our library staff all dressed as jillaroos and jackaroos, just as a start). From the beach to the bush, Dreamtime stories, and Australian children’s classics, I can’t wait to explore this theme more.


Meanwhile, you can check out my Pinterest board, Library – Book Week, which I will be updating to reflect the 2016 theme.
