Let's Read

The Let's Read vision is for all Australian children to share books, stories, songs and nursery rhymes every day from birth with the important people in their lives.  

Why is reading important?

Almost half (46%) of Australians over 15 lack the literacy skills they need to meet the demands of everyday life and work.

Literacy is one of the most important foundations for success in school and life. It is well documented that an individual's literacy levels affect their opportunities in life for education, employment, income and wellbeing

Let's Read kits are available to borrow from the library. Each kit contains 4 picture books to share with your child plus a DVD about the importance of reading to your child from an early age.

Kits available are age specific:

  • From 4 months
  • From 12 months
  • From 18 months
  • From 3.5 years

Let's Read kits can be reserved via the Library Catalogue
