Tuesday 19 August is the date to celebrate The Reading Hour for 2014. Blue Mountains City Library is hosting an event at the Carrington Hotel Library from 6pm – 7pm, and everyone is welcome to join us.
Reading Hour ambassador William McInnes says, “Reading makes me think about the world that’s been … makes me think about the world that is … and makes me think about the world that could be.”
The Reading Hour initiative reminds parents and caregivers that reading together doesn’t have to be a massive undertaking in their busy lives, and that sharing a book with a child for 10 minutes a day – or just over an hour a week – will still give that child the best chance of becoming a good reader later in life, along with all the social and educational benefits it brings.

Light supper will be provided, just bring yourself and a good book!
