Australia Reads

Did you know that members have loaned 1.8 million items from Sunshine Coast Libraries? You love to tuck into a great read.

In November, Australians of all ages from all walks of life are invited to share and celebrate the joys of reading. Thursday 12 November is Australian Reading Hour. You are invited to stop what you are doing for an hour, pick up a book and read to yourself or the children in your life.

Join in and unwind, get inspired and find joy in books! From islands, blue shores, bushland to red heart – Australia Reads.
