Sofa Poem-time

Sunshine Coast Libraries are inviting all families to help create a memorable Christmas Eve poem time for the little ones in our community.

The aim:

To get as many people as possible to film themselves reading the famous Christmas poem of A visit from St. Nicholas: ‘Twas the night before Christmas by Clement Clarke Moore.

Libraries will then edit the footage to make one complete rousing Christmas film of the poem featuring as many people as possible!

How it works:

- Print a copy of the poem (see link below) or pick up a copy from your local library.

- Register your family/yourself to participate.

- Libraries will email you with a guide to filming and how to submit footage.

- Film yourselves reading/enacting the poem. Christmas props, costumes and cheer are welcome!

- Submit footage to Libraries.

- Wait with bated breath till the final product airs on Sunshine Coast Libraries social media on Thursday 24 December at 7pm.

Registration closes Monday 30 November at 5pm. Once registration is submitted an email will be sent with all the details.
