Each year we invite local schools to our branch libraries to participate in Book Week and to learn about the library. Unfortunately due to COVID19 restrictions, we are unable to welcome classes this August. In place of these visits, we will be running two separate competitions for children to participate in.
Drawing competition for 5-8 years
Book review competition for 9-12 years
A selection of the best submissions will be posted on the library webpage after Book Week, for the community to see. Your entry could also win you a $20 book voucher! There will be 6 vouchers available for each age group.
Competitions are proudly supported by The Friends of Wingecarribee Libraries
