But what are the Reading Culture Awards?

The Riverina Regional Library would like to recognise the contribution of individuals and groups enriching the lives of people in the community through literacy.

There are many people quietly contributing to the improvement of literacy in our communities.

Maybe you know of a grandparent helping new Australian citizens learn to use the library, or teenagers assisting seniors to download eBooks, or perhaps a business funding books for hospital waiting rooms.

SHARE: Book lovers.

Anyone can nominate either a group or an individual who is actively involved in literacy activities in the Wagga community.

If you are thinking of making a nomination just check with those concerned first to be sure they agree.

Nomination forms can be collected in person from the front counter of the library or by visitingrrl.nsw.gov备案老域名/reading-culture-award-2016.
