Dads Read Fun Day

Dads are the ultimate role models. Reading with young children not only helps them to develop a love of reading, but also strengthens their literacy skills, models positive reading behaviour and builds children’s self-esteem around reading which is a fundamental life skill.

Sunshine Coast Libraries will be promoting Dads Read and providing opportunities for Dads to read with their kids throughout the month of September. To launch this special month join us for a great day at Maroochydore.


To launch Dads Read across the Sunshine Coast, libraries will host a family fun day at Maroochydore Library.
