GOSFORD LIBRARY -Kids and Young Adult Libraries on the Central Coast- is innovative, reaching kids, parents and community. Claire Stuckey the librarian is the driving dynamo supported by the head of the library services Sharon Drayton and the Council.
I love the teen club. Home schoolers, kids from all over the Central Coast who love books and pizza and games- get together for Teen Club. I was the guest author for one Friday night event and judged the fancy dress competition where the teens were their favourite book character. Great night and I ate too much pizza.
SCBWI Authors Felicity Pulman, Chris Cheng, Jeni Mawter were part of the book events this year.
There are some big community Christmas literacy events with Cubs, Joeys, Women’s choir , childrens music group AND the children’s team from the libraries out in the park. Last year there were 300 people celebrating books and community there.
For authors who’d like to go out there and for the community who want to be part of the festivities, find out what’s on at Gosford Libraries on the Central Coast of NSW.
