On Library Lovers’ Day (aka Valentine’s Day) Cockburn Libraries launched its National Year 2012 of Reading program.
The launch features an excellent speech from author Julia Lawrinson, some very entertaining MCing (the old school kind) by broadcaster Grant Stone, a Welcome to Country and a great story from Reverend Sealin Garlett, and the official launch bit by City of Cockburn Mayor Logan K Howlett. The event podcast is top and tailed with some words from City Librarian Duncan Furphy.
