Australia’s National Year of Reading 2012 was launched today, 14 February, in the capital city, Canberra.

My colleagues Barbie and Rhonda of Paint the Town REaD were on hand to celebrate the launch with David Bradbury, MP for Penrith.

Paint the Town REaD's Reading BugPaint the Town REaD is an early literacy scheme that inspires Aussies to read, talk, sing, and rhyme with their child from birth.

You can find out more about them via my Case Studies page: http://matthewfinch.me/case-studies/

Expect more news from Down Under as the Aussies begin a year-long adventure celebrating literature and literacy across the nation.

Next time on the blog, I’ll be looking in on the high school in New South Wales which has brought a bohemian vibe to their library in rural Australia.
