2018 – REaDy, Set, Go!

Paint the Town REaD groups across Australia are off and running, and especially  Librarians, who are including children under school age in their Summer Reading Challenges at their local libraries. It’s a great way to give children starting school that final boost, and for younger children to model from older siblings is always a super opportunity. And you might even bump into your local PTTR mascot there as well.
