National Year of Reading 2012 - NSW Update

The National Year of Reading is rapidly approaching with many people working hard on a variety of activities.   The official website, Facebook page and Twitter account are great ways to keep up with national news about the campaign.

You can find information about the NSW Steering Committee on the Public Libraries NSW website (country) and the NSW Metropolitan Public Libraries Association website.

The Twitter Reading Group have planned reading themes around the petals of the National Year of Reading logo.  For more information about the reading group contact Ellen Forsyth or the other members of the Readers' Advisory Working Group.  The RA Working Group also have some great ideas for National Year of Reading activities.

Children's and youth services library people will be brainstorming at the National Year of Reading - ALIA CYS Unconference at Cabramatta Library on Monday 17 October.  For more information about the unconference contact Mylee Joseph or Manjit Uppal.

The September issue of Good Reading magazine also features a double spread on National Year of Reading.

We will keep adding links to NYR resources in the Public Library Services delicious account.  We'd love to hear about what you're planning for your library in 2012.

PLS team


Pam Young's Gravatar Griffith City Library is planning a whole year of fantastic events to celebrate NYR2012 - so many that we're producing a program booklet and launching it all with a dinner inside the library on 3 December this year. It's a logistical challenge but the staff are really pumped to get on board this fantastic initiative.
