Meet and Greet
The State Library of Western Australia’s flagship initiative to kick-start the National Year of Reading is the Love2Read café - an outdoor reading room based on the Bryant Park model in New York. Open from Saturday 21 January – Sunday 26 February, this book café is situated in the canopied area out the front of the State Library, and creates a new venue within the Perth Cultural Centre.
Filled with brightly coloured chairs and tables, and five book trolleys featuring a range of reading materials for all ages and interests, the Love2Read café will also have a range of programs and events suitable for audiences of all ages. Some of the featured events to look out for include author talks, children’s activities, word game afternoons, screenings of classic films based on books, and live music.
