Sunshine Coast Council's libraries invite children to dress as their favourite character and attend a storytime session during Children's Book Week from August 19-26.

Community Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay said each year across Australia, the Children's Book Council of Australia brings children and books together celebrating Children's Book Week.

"During this time, our libraries join schools, booksellers, authors and illustrators to celebrate Australian children's literature," Cr McKay said.

"This year the theme for Children's Book Week is Escape to Everywhere and we are inviting children to dress up in their favourite character and head to a storytime session at Beerwah, Caloundra, Coolum, Kawana, Maleny, Maroochydore and Nambour Libraries."

Dress up in your favourite character and attend one of the following free storytime sessions:
