As it’s almost Library Lovers Day 2015 – Saturday 14 February – we’d thought it’d be a good time to relive this Library Lovers’ Day event from 2012, the year Australia celebrated the National Year of Reading.

On Library Lovers’ Day (aka Valentine’s Day) Cockburn Libraries launched its National Year 2012 of Reading program.

The launch features talking from author Julia Lawrinson, MCing (the old school kind) by the very entertaining Grant Stone (pictured), a Welcome to Country (and more) by Reverend Sealin Garlett, and the offical launch bit by City of Cockburn Mayor Logan K Howlett.
