Australian Reading Hour… Stories that matter

Australia Reads is a national initiative to promote the many benefits of reading. Their big annual event, Australian Reading Hour, is set to happen on Tuesday, 14 September.

With events happening in libraries, schools and bookshops across Australia, we invite you to visit your local library, borrow a book and celebrate the joy of reading with us!

Queenstown, Strahan, Zeehan and Rosebery libraries will be:

  • Inviting prominent locals to share what they like to read, including reading their favourite story or a poem
  • Inviting students from local schools to write a story to be read on radio

Devonport Library will be hosting an Australia Reads Pyjama Party!

Kingston Library is having Special Saturday Storytime to celebrate Australian Reading Hour.

To find out what your local library is doing, search for Libraries Tasmania on Eventbrite, or check directly with your local library.
