Event: Children's Book Festival Family Day, Melbourne

Join in the biggest celebration of children's books that Melbourne has ever seen – featuring heaps of our favourite authors and illustrators.

On the State Library lawns you'll find a petting zoo, marquees, roving performers, fun kids' activities and a stage with music acts.

Around the corner from the Library, the Wheeler Centre will host authors and illustrators in conversation, and upstairs in Queen's Hall kids will be able to meet with more authors and illustrators.

The Village Roadshow Theatrette will feature puppet shows and theatre. Inside the Library, there'll be storytelling and worskshops in the Experimedia space and books to be launched in the Blue Rotunda.

And while you're there, don't forget to visit the free exhibition Look! The art of Australian picture books inside the State Library.

The free family day will be followed by two days of programs for primary school groups.

When: Sunday, 3 April 2011 from 10am to 4pm
Where: State Library of Victoria, 328 Swanston Street, Melbourne
