Book Week Display

The theme for this year’s Book Week is Australia: Story Country. My talented aide, Peta, spent the holidays setting up various displays in the library around the theme. The main display is a campfire setting in the middle of the library to bring in the idea of storytelling around the fire. We brought in logs and stones and branches from home and dressed mannequins in borrowed clothes. A rainbow serpent made from electrical tape and cellophane adorns the doors in to the library before a display of Dreamtime stories. On the back wall we have copies of book covers and arrows pointing to a map of Australia, showing where each book is set.
