Hills Shire library reading club turns one

The Hills Shire Council’s Year One Reading Club is celebrating a quarter-century of helping children develop a love of reading.

Mayor, Peter Gangemi reflected on the milestone, congratulating all who have been involved with the local library club over the last 25 years.

“Since 1999, the Year One Reading Club has promoted literacy and ignited the imaginations of over 17,000 Year One students,” the Mayor said.

“It’s such an important stage for children to soak up all the learning they can, and the Year One Reading Club helps make reading an enjoyable habit.

“It’s a fantastic program, and I’m encouraging new members to join.”

Year One Reading Club is free to join at any of The Hills Shire Library branches at Baulkham Hills, Castle Hill, Dural and Rouse Hill. Participants receive a logbook when they join, then a sticker each time they visit their local library to borrow, as well as rewards along the way.
