Release the readers
They might be just learning the first letters of the alphabet, but preschoolers are being encouraged to get down to the Lismore Library next Tuesday, February 14, for the launch of the National Year of Reading.
The library's Release the Reader morning will include a range of fun activities for young children with their parents or carers.
On arrival children will be given a 'passport' to allow them to explore activities including 'feel the words' with play dough and 'find the words' with magnificent magnifiers or listen to a story in the Story Circle.
The National Year of Reading promotes the benefits of reading as a life skill for all Australians - including those who are still learning how.
Library assistant Annette McGrath said it will also be a good day for people to find out about the many early childhood programs that run throughout the year at the library. For more information, phone 6621 2464.
