Love2read Reading Group on Twitter

The Love2read Reading Group is run by the NSW Readers Advisory Working Group and has been formed as part of the National Year of Reading. This online reading group

 “encourages everyone to read and tweet about what they are reading”

Monthly themes have been set to inspire readers to get reading and then to start talking about what they are reading. Discussions might be held via Twitter, on a blog or even face to face….It’s all about sharing! Live twitter sessions on each theme are planned for the end of each month.

January’s theme is Amazing Reads. Love2read is hosting a live twitter discussion on this theme on January 31st, starting at 8.00pm Australian Eastern Standard Time (and lasting until about 10.00pm Western Standard Time).  Use the tag #NYR12 as you discuss your Amazing read.

National Year of Reading 2012

TAFE NSW Libraries are delighted to support The National Year of Reading 2012.

TAFE Libraries are all about supporting teaching and learning  in vocational and higher education. Reading and information literacy are vitally important skills that assist the teaching and learning process.

Hunter TAFE  library staff play a significant role in helping our customers through an increasingly complex information environment and in raising information literacy standards.

Our libraries provide excellent facilities, services and resources, both physical and virtual, to meet the needs of our students and teachers.

For those of you who like to take a break from study and relax with a good book, many Hunter TAFE libraries also have fiction collections. For more details, ask staff at your local campus library.

We look forward to promoting the National Year of Reading to all of our  customers. Throughout the year we will be adding regular posts about National Year of Reading events and activities that you can get involved in, so follow this blog to keep up to date!
