Paint Hawkesbury REaD

Paint the Town REaD was first developed in the rural Australian town of Parkes in the 1990s, with the goal of bringing the whole community together around the message of, “Read, talk, sing and rhyme with your child from birth". It has since grown to include 37 Local Government Areas including the Hawkesbury group which was established in 2013.

The Hawkesbury Library Service is an active member and assists in organising the annual reading day and other literacy events throughout the year.  Puddles the reading dragon is Hawkesbury’s reading mascot.
