2019 Gold Star and Little Stars Reading Club programs
Children from all over Brisbane are invited to take part in reading programs at Council libraries this winter. The 2019 Gold Star Reading Club program for children aged 6-12 years will again be joined by the literacy program for young children, the Little Stars Reading Club program. Designed for children aged 0-5 years and their carers, the Little Stars Reading Club program is a wonderful way to connect and bond with your child while developing their early literacy skills. Both programs commence in Brisbane City Council libraries on Wednesday 1 May and run until Wednesday 31 July 2019.
