Celebrating the Writes of Spring


n spring 2012, as part of Australia's National Year of Reading, the State Library of Victoria and Victorian public libraries invited adults and children from around the state to tell a story on a postcard, inspired by an original illustration.

More than 2400 entires were received from all ages, from which 35 winners were selected. These winning entries are printed in a gorgeous hard cover book, in full colour. This is a wonderful, diverse celebration of our community's creativity.

Three of the winners are members of the Yarra Plenty Regional Library service, so we congratulate these people who were awarded a copy of the book along with a $50 Readings voucher.
