On Thursday 14 September, stop what you’re doing for one hour and pick up a book! It’s that simple.

Cairns Libraries is supporting the Australian Reading Hour, and we are encouraging people of all ages to embrace the benefits of reading.

It has been shown to help children with identifying formation, setting them up for future success and to reduce stress in adults by 68% more than listening to music, walking, or having a cup of tea.

Make sure you find out what is happening in your Library today.
