Central West Libraries’ 24 Hour Read

Love to Read imageTo celebrate the National Year of Reading 2012, Central West Libraries will be hosting a 24 Hour Read starting on Wednesday, 12 September 2012 across the local government areas of Orange, Cabonne, Blayney, Cowra and Forbes.

The 24 Hour Read will capture the stories of people, schools, organisations and businesses reading in their own environment in 10 minute timeslots from 11am on Wednesday, 12 September 2012 to 11 am Thursday, 13 September 2012.

It doesn’t matter what you read: a book; a newspaper; a street map; a reference manual; a timetable; a letter or report; you can read anything you choose – including an audio book!

The photos and stories of the 24 Hour Read will be uploaded to the Central West Libraries’ Facebook page throughout the day to show that we are a reading community. You are invited to participate by completing the 24 Hour Read – Registrations form nominating a 10 minute timeslot within that time and forwarding it to:
