Children's Literature Champions 

The City of South Perth’s Children’s Literature Champion Program has been running since 2020 as a means to connect local authors with library programs and encourage a love of reading and literacy development in young people.

Throughout the year, our Champions will run workshops and host events, integrating learning and quality literature into the library calendar.

You'll be able to meet our Champions at various events - the South Perth Young Writers Award (SPYWA), during book week, school holiday workshops, and at other important events throughout the year.

To find out what's happening at your local library, see our upcoming library events.
