National Poetry Day

Librarians and library friends fired children’s enthusiasm for poetry at Snells Beach School last month by having works painted on their bodies.

The librarians also wore skirts made of newsprint collages, which were created by the children to further celebrate the printed word.

The event was held to mark National Poetry Day on August 24 and included children and local poets reciting their own verse.

The Snells Beach stop was part of a travelling roadshow for the librarians, which also included a bookshop, rest home, café, supermarkets and the Warkworth Museum.
