Looking back on the National Year of Reading

If you’ve been following our blog this year you may be aware that 2012 is the National Year of Reading. Australia voted on the eight books that make up this year’s NYOR collection, and libraries all over the country have hosted various competitions and events to promote reading.

Here’s a great National Year of Reading video promoting literacy in early childhood. Reading to your child for just 10 minutes a day can make a huge difference in their reading and communication skills, so come to the library and pick out some great books today.
