A great weekend at Stretch Festival
We had a fabulous weekend at Mandurah's Stretch Festival helping children and their families create their own books at the Books-To-Go book cubby. Library staff and volunteers had a lovely time running the event and we enjoyed receiving very positive feedback from the public.
Children of all ages visited this activity and a total of 130 books were made over the weekend. Some of the books contain illustrations only, some are mini picture books and some are like little novels.
The book cubby itself was a very popular place for children to relax and enjoy the books made by other children.
Many thanks to the wonderful volunteers and staff who worked on this activity.
A very special thanks to the State Library of Western Australia for supporting the City of Mandurah to run the Books-To-Go event. We highly recommend this activity to other libraries wanting to run a creative and fun literacy event. Details about Better Beginnings Books-To-Go can be found here.
