Book the date

YOUNG bookworms will be wriggling for glee in Bayswater when Book Week rolls around at the end of the month.

This year’s theme is “reading is my secret power”, and there’s a host of events lined up in Baysy including a young adults writers’ workshop with author AJ Betts, and a family party where kids get to dress up as their favourite book character.

“A love of books can be powerful for kids of all ages,” Bayswater mayor Dan Bull says.

“Reading helps kids learn more about the world, explore their creative side and is even shown to be a great stress reliever.

“If you haven’t visited your local library in a while, Book Week is the perfect excuse to pop down and see first-hand everything we have on offer.”

Book Week runs from August 17-23 with events at Bayswater, Maylands and Morley libraries.
