It’s Book Week and although we can’t be together in person, we still want to celebrate the wondrous world of books and reading with you!

This Book Week we’re encouraging our young (and young at heart!) residents to dress up like their favourite literary characters and create a Book Face photo.

Click here for more information and a great Thelma the Unicorn example (also pictured) from our library services partner Lane Cove Council.

Email your photos to by 27 August and at the end of Book Week, we will share them and announce the winner.

This year’s Book Week theme is Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds so feel free to be as creative as you like.

We can’t wait to see everyone’s photos and there are book vouchers and library bags up for grabs.


Terms and conditions:

Entries will be accepted between 21 – 27 August 2021.

Entrants must email their photos to with ‘Book Week’ as the subject line.

Please ensure your child’s face is covered in the photo. We recommend that your child holds their book in front of their face to create a ‘Book Face’.

By emailing the photo, you give permission for Hunter’s Hill Council and Lane Cove Council to publish the images on their website and Facebook page. 

Participants own the copyright of their photos. In entering the competition, the participant gives Hunter’s Hill Council and Lane Cove Council authority to reproduce, publish, communicate or display the work online (including social media), in presentations, videos, publications and, if selected, for public display at various venues.

Where possible, entrants will be credited with the photographs when they are used, however this is not guaranteed.
