Book Week may have gone online this year but local primary school students have demonstrated their creativity, dressing up as their favourite literary characters for a series of virtual book parades.
This years theme was 'Old World, New Worlds, Other Worlds' and was a celebration of 75 years of Book Week, which was started in 1946 with the Children's Book Awards.
Yoogali Public School Principal Leanne McWhirter said that Book Week was a much loved event on the school calendar.
"We love to dress up at Yoogali Public School, and this year while we can't be physically together for our dress up day we will virtually," Mrs McWhirter said.
Griffith East Public School Librarian, Denise Higgins said that with the help of other amazing stuff, planned Book Week activities had pivoted online, making for an engaging and educational time.
"Each year Book Week is eagerly anticipated, not only by our children, but also our staff," Mrs Higgins said.
"This year our virtual book week was no exception, it was an outstanding effort from both staff and students alike."
Students across Griffith also took part in a range of virtual book week readings, author talks and even song and dance sessions as part of the at home fun.
Griffith City Library has announced the winners of their annual Book Week competition, with over 500 entries received in the Redesign a Book Cover and Book Review categories.
