On Thursday 19 September, we’re encouraging all residents to pick up a book and read for Australian Reading Hour.
Australian Reading Hour is an annual event to promote the benefits of reading – on your own or with the children in your life.
With children, reading has been shown to help with identity formation, setting them up for success in the future. With adults, reading has been shown to reduce stress by 68% more than listening to music, going for a walk, or having a cup of tea.
Take the time to learn, escape and relax for one hour (or more).
Get reading at Bayside libraries at one of our Australian Reading Hour events to help you re/discover the joys of reading:
