Silent Reading

Kingston Reads text in bright colours

Kingston Libraries is celebrating reading together in early March.

Bring your own book and read in comfortable silence in the library for half an hour.

Followed by a cuppa, some refreshments and a chat about what you are reading.

Silent Reading is a phenomenon, originally created for introverts, where there is no pressure to speak, converse, or navigate through awkward small talk. Engage as much or as little as you like.

Australia Reads is a not-for-profit collaboration of the Australian Library and Information Association, Australian Publishers Association, the Australian Society of Authors and the BookPeople, working with members of all four organisations. Its mission is to get more people reading more books, more often!

No bookings required.
