Australian Reading Hour 2018
On Thursday 20 September, we took the time to relax, learn and grow with Australian Reading Hour.
Australians across the country were encouraged to pick up a book and read for one hour on their own or with their children.
At Cockburn Libraries, we also invited borrowers to celebrate with morning tea.

- Reading a gripping novel causes positive biological changes in the brain that can last for days?
- Reading to children six to seven days a week puts them almost a year ahead of those who are not being read to?
