AUSTRALIAN READING HOUR – TAKE THE TIME
During September all of Australia is encouraged to pick up a book and escape in its pages for an hour. For children it has been shown reading helps with identity formation, setting them up for success in the future. For adults reading can reduce stress by 68% more than listening to music, going for a walk or having a cup of tea. To celebrate Reading Hour Parkes Library is launching its newest pre-schooler program – Once Upon a Storytime. The Parkes Library team will stop what they are doing at 10.30am on Tuesday, 25th September and share the joy of reading. Pre-schoolers their parents and carers are invited to participate in the first ever Parkes Library Once Upon a Stortyime.
