Read-In at the Library!

Posted: August 10, 2012 in Uncategorized

Greetings, book lovers!  As you may know, 2012 is the National Year of Reading: a special year in which libraries, bookstores and literature aficionados all around the nation celebrate literacy and the majestic awesomeness of the written word.  One very important part of the Australia-wide celbration of all things textual is The Reading Hour on Saturday August 25th, during which all over our vast nation people will be stopping to spend an hour immersed in the joy of reading.

The Reading Hour is fast approaching, and we here at super-secret library blog headquarters are hugely looking forward to it, as we look forward to any opportunity to spend an hour reading!  However, because the official Hour is taking place on a Saturday, we will be running an additional special event here at the school library during the preceding week as a kind of warm-up to Reading Hour.

The Great Read-In

What?  The school library is delighted to invite you to a very special event.  As part of our National Year of Reading celebrations, we will be holding a Read-In at the library during which students and staff are invited to come and share the joy of the written word.  For one glorious lunchtime, the library will be transformed into a reading-only zone.  No studying!  No chess!  Just wonderful reading!

When?  The Read-In will be held at lunchtime on Friday August 24th.  The Read-In will run for the whole of lunchtime and people are welcome to bring their lunch along.

What’s in it for me?  Well, apart from the pleasure of fifty minutes’ quiet communion with literature in the company of your peers, there will also be a small commemorative prize for each and every participant, be they student or teacher.
