Tomorrow Thursday 20 September is Australian Reading Hour. The day is all about promoting reading to everyone and the benefits. Take the time to learn, grow, escape and relax. Reading to children can help them identity formation, setting them up for success in the future. For adults, reading has shown to reduce stress by 68% more than listening to music, going for a walk or having a cup of tea. So why not come into the library, not just tomorrow, and find something to read. Be it a book or magazine.
The book sale is up and running inside the library. All funds raised go straight back into purchasing items for the collection. So please support where you can.
School holidays are fast approaching again. So far, I have announced that I will be reintroducing the cinema. These will be classic movies from the National Film & Sound Archives in Canberra. Keep an eye out for dates and times as there will be a mixture of these throughout October. Something for everyone.
