Come together and read with others in our courtyard for “The Australian Reading Hour”
On Thursday September 14 2017, stop what you’re doing for one hour and pick up a book. It’s that easy. Any time between 9am and 5pm come and be part of our community reading a book for an hour.
The Australian Reading Hour is an initiative that encourages Australian adults and children to embrace the benefits of reading for one hour. It aims to encourage people, both young and old to either rediscover their love of reading or introduce them to the joys of storytelling and learning.
Reading is incredibly important for both adults and children, leading to long-lasting identity formation and setting up success for the future. Research shows that reading reduces stress by 68% more than listening to music, going for a walk, or a cup of tea.
Books Proofs, and samplers will be available for you to read or bring along your own book. Grab a coffee or tea from a local coffee shop and enjoy the courtyard while reading your book.
