Come and celebrate Children's Book Week with Subiaco Library. 

Each year schools and public libraries across Australia spend a week celebrating books and Australian authors and illustrators. This is an opportunity to meet a well loved author and learn about the joys of writing, how to become published and where authors find their inspiration and amazing ideas.

The theme this year is Dreaming with Eyes Open... To day dream is to have dreamlike musings or fantasies while awake. What do you dream about with your eyes open?
