What is Read More?
The Moreland Reading Project Read More is a celebration of reading to develop a community culture where the importance of reading is valued and acknowledged. Since it began in 2000, Read More has hosted a wide range of free activities to appeal to our diverse Moreland community.
From the topical and informative to the escapist and experimental, events have included talks by local and international authors as well as workshops varying from recording your own music, poetry writing, parenting and tracing the history of your house.
Other activities have included film nights, cultural performances, sporting demonstrations, cookery sessions, special children's storytimes and fun competitions.
The BookStart kit
A highlight of Read More is the library's BookStart kit which is distributed to every Moreland baby through Council Maternal and Child Health Nurses.
The free kit contains a board book and advice on developing children's reading skills from an early age as well as information on parenting resources.
How to get involved in Read More
A community-wide initiative, Read More provides a forum for community groups to promote their own reading-related activities.
Local organisations interested in becoming involved in Read More should contact Coburg Library.
