Events that kick literacy

Cr O'Callaghan said, "Latrobe City Libraries may not be renowned for their standing in the local sporting arena, but they are experts in delivering events that kick literacy, learning and social goals. Eddie has written two children's books, and will read from the latest, MY PEOPLE, where you'll hear about the importance of Aboriginal culture. He'll answer your questions and do signings."

"Eddie loves to meet people and, together with his kind crew, he delivers a strong message about culture, community and resilience. The event is also being supported by local sporting and community groups so there will be plenty of other activities to occupy young minds and bodies. You can kick a footy, play games with Latrobe street games, join the library and borrow other sporting titles." Cr O'Callaghan said.

Bookings are at Eventbrite but to find out more go to Latrobe City Library website or visit your local branch.
