Year One Reading Club is celebrating a quarter-century of helping children develop a love of reading, the Hills Shire Library Service shared on Friday, 10 May 2024. 

Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Peter Gangemi, reflected on the milestone.

“I would like to congratulate everyone who has been involved with the Year One Reading Club over the last 25 years on this incredible milestone,” Mayor Gangemi said.

“Since 1999, the Year One Reading Club has promoted literacy and ignited the imaginations of over 17,000 Year One students.

“It’s such an important stage for children to soak up all the learning they can, and the Year One Reading Club helps make reading an enjoyable habit.”

“It’s a fantastic program, and I’m encouraging new members to join.”
