Book Week is coming! The theme for this year is 'Dreaming with eyes open...' and we invite you to join us for a range of events, special storytimes and a library bookmark designing competition. 

Each year since 1945 the CBCA has brought children and books together across Australia through CBCA Book Week. During this time schools and public libraries spend one glorious week celebrating books and Australian children's authors and illustrators.
