Join our Pyjama Party at the Chinchilla Library

10 August 2016

Come dressed in your pyjamas and bring a big comfy pillow and your favourite book to our pyjama party at the Chinchilla Library on Friday 19 August as we get ready for a night filled with adventure, magic, and wonderful stories in celebration of National Reading Hour.

Western Downs Regional Council Spokesperson for Community and Cultural Development Councillor Kaye Maguire said Reading Hour at the Chinchilla Library is set to be a fun-filled night for all.

“If you’re a bookworm, love stories, or really like wearing your pyjamas out, then our special Reading Hour pyjama party at the Chinchilla Library is the place you want to be,” she said.

“We encourage kids, their parents, family and friends to come and join us for a night filled with wonderful stories with everyone getting the chance to be a master storyteller by sharing their favourite book with the crowd.

“You’ll get to hear about all the best books from your friends, and you never know you might find some new books to read at home with Mum, Dad or Grandma and Grandpa.”

Cr Maguire said Reading Hour, which is held across Australia, is aimed at reminding parents, caregivers, and families of the importance and how easy it is to read together with their children.

“We’re all getting busier and there’s always never enough time in the day, but reading together with your children doesn’t have to be a massive undertaking,” she said.

“Reading Hour aims to spread the simple message — ‘Share a book anytime, anywhere’ with your children.

“What better way to share the gift of reading than together with other families and booklovers at our special pyjama party at the Chinchilla Library.”

Bookings are essential for this event, so make sure you get in quick! Visit the Libraries website or phone 1300 COUNCIL.

The event is best suited to children aged between 8 and 12 years.
