Join us for Australian Reading Hour and rediscover the joy of being read to whilst enjoying some light refreshment. For one night only, story time is for the grown-ups and you will hear a selection of short fiction, poetry, and articles chosen by one of our well-read librarians.
You could also take the mic and share some of your favourite writing with your fellow readers.
Bookings required. Ages 18+
Want to share some writing?
We are welcoming you to take the mic and share some of your favourite writing. You’ll have a maximum of five minutes, so make sure to choose a good extract if you are reading from a longer piece.
Things you might read to the group include:
- short stories
- novel extracts
Five benefits of reading:
- Reduces stress and promotes wellness
- Helps with brain health
- Helps sleep
- Improves our relationships through increased empathy
- Reading inspires success ‘not all readers are leaders, but all readers are leaders’
