Australian Reading Hour

Thursday, September 14, 2017, is the Australian Reading Hour, so stop what you are doing for one hour and pick up a book. There is no set time, so just when it suits you! Why read? Reading is invaluable!

The Australian Library and Information Association encourages Australians to either rediscover or introduce themselves to the benefits of reading. In children, it has been shown to help with identity formation, setting them up for success in the future. In adults, it has been shown to reduce stress by 68%, more than listening to music, going for a walk or having a cup of tea.
