Get ready to Cook it, Grow it, and Make it

A fantastic line-up of chefs, gardeners and artists come together in this year’s Unley Libraries Festival. The event will be hosted by radio celebrity Cosi, and features over 20 different activities for families to do, see and hear.

The Festival offers the opportunity to see and try new things you rarely see in libraries. Reflecting the theme of ‘Cook it, Grow it, Make it’, this community literary festival for children and adults offers great events including presentations, demonstrations and hands-on activities by authors, artists and local bookshops.

Highlights of the festival include a cooking demonstration by TV personality and Chef Poh Ling Yeow; storytelling by children’s author Janeen Brian and Amanda Graham; and gardening and DIY tips with ABC presenters, Malcolm Campbell and Rose Squire. Some activities require a gold coin donation, but most are free.

“The festival makes learning fun and provides connections to ideas and works of the imagination” said Hanlie Erasmus, Library and Museum Services Manager. “With over 800 people attending last year’s event, we expect an even larger crowd this year.”

The winner of the FindYourEverything.com.au competition will be announced during the Festival. The prize is an outstanding $6000 Rawson’s Elite appliance and cookware package which includes state-of-the art European kitchen appliances and an 11-piece cookware set.

The Unley Libraries Festival will be held from Saturday 2 November to Monday 4 November, at the Unley Civic Library, 181 Unley Road, Unley. Booking are essential for all main events (except Community Selection). Bookings can be made on 8372 5100 or online at www.unley.sa.gov.au
