LIANZA has been working with public libraries and school libraries to put together #NZCYA . They have posted the Books Alive calendar and started to promote via social media.
Books Alive virtual storytimes are being offered online for the first time. We are celebrating and promoting the New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults #NZCYA finalist books, authors and illustrators and publishers to new audiences around the country.
The Books Alive virtual storytimes build on the experiences of public and school libraries offering virtual storytimes during COVID-19 lockdown and are read either by #NZCYA 2020 finalist authors or by librarians. And sometimes a VIP reader joins in too !
We hope you enjoy these virtual storytimes !
The Books Alive events are ‘live’ from Monday August 3 – some are just so much fun !!
