Book Week 2017 – Activity Ideas

Book Week is such an exciting time for celebrating books, libraries and readers. Here are a few ideas for Book Week activities, fitting in with this year’s theme Escape To Everywhere.

LibraryLady Nicole has provided a detailed manual for an escape room, which she used in her own library. Her Escape Room Manual, provided in PDF form, is seriously epic, so look no further if you are interested in creating your own escape room.

What is your ideal escape? Take a photo and edit in your escape. Photoshop skills required. I’m still working out the details for this comp, but I’m sure our senior students will love to have a play with this.
