The Reading Hour 2015

The Clea Salavert Library Blog supports The Reading Hour initiative that will take place tomorrow, 18 August, between 6 and 7 pm. The Reading Hour highlights the idea that “It doesn’t matter what you read - as long as you read something - because reading is a skill for life which can make you feel good about yourself and enable you to see the world through someone else’s eyes.”

The whole purpose of The Reading Hour is to celebrate reading. Clea’s siblings have recently taken up reading some classics of 20th-century English literature. Both The Lord of the Flies and Animal Farm have captured their imagination. They are not easy books to read for 11-yea-olds, but they’ve taken up the challenge with enthusiasm; but more importantly, they are spurred on to read these books by their curiosity to see the world through someone else’s eyes. We’ll celebrate The Reading Hour tomorrow, if not at 6 pm, maybe a little later. We hope you and your families will join this fantastic initiative, and read or talk about a book you have read!
