Please click on below link to find out what is going on at Innerwest Council – Leichhardt and Balmain Libraries in January for children.





Write a book review for our blog!

Hi all,

You are invited to write a book review of your favourite children’s story for our blog. If it has a great hero or villain in it, then all the better. You do not have to be a member of Inner West Council libraries to enter but that would be nice!


Heroes and Villains come in all shapes and sizes. They can be superheroes like Batman or Superman, classic heroes like Robin Hood or Peter Pan or Mary Poppins, even!  They can be animal heroes like Snoopy, Rin Tin Tin, Lassie, National Velvet, Flicka or Fury. Heroes can be everyday people in books too, like a good soldier or nurse or policewoman.

You can either post them on here yourself or send them to librarykats@innerwest.nsw.gov.au

Have fun writing. It can be as short as a sentence or as big as a full page.
