Book-in for the Reading Hour

WHETHER you go through books like a well-oiled reading machine or just enjoy flipping through one once in a while, you are more than welcome to come along to one of three Clarence Valley libraries this Saturday night to help celebrate the Reading Hour.

Inspired by the Earth Hour concept, the Reading Hour - to be held between 6pm and 7pm this Saturday at the Grafton, Yamba and Maclean Libraries - invites people to take an hour to read either at home or at one of the participating libraries in the Valley.

Those who make the journey to their local library for Reading Hour will also be able to find out more about membership and the resources available there from library staff.

2012 also happens to be the National Year of Reading and Mayor Richie Williamson said the Reading Hour was a great opportunity for the community to get together and embrace reading of all kinds.

"If everyone reads at least 10 minutes a day or an hour a week, it can enhance your well-being and continue lifelong learning," Cr Williamson said.

The three libraries to be open for the Reading Hour this Saturday night are also seeking expressions of interest in forming library-based book clubs to meet regularly.

For more information about the Reading Hour or to express interest in joining one of the new book clubs, head online to crl.nsw.gov.au.
