Monday, 1 August 2016

It's August! Which means Book Week (my favourite week of the year) and also the Children's Book Council of Australia ACT Branch's annual book appeal. I went along to Civic Library today, where Meegan Fitzharris, Minister for Transport Canberra and City Services, officially launched the appeal.

The ACT Branch will be collecting books at a number of sites during August to donate to local charities and refuges, as Christmas gifts for disadvantaged children.

Their 2016 donation target is 1600+ books.
