My local library has asked me to be a supporter of the library for the National Year of Reading 2012. What a lovely honour. I've accepted.
This means lending my name and image to promotional material, being available to attend, and perhaps speak at, events, and generally encouraging reading as required. I've had a very enjoyable relationship with my local library over the years, and I'm happy to do whatever they want that they might consider useful.
The launch date is 14 February, Library Lovers Day.
The National Patron is William McInnes, and the NSW State Ambassadors are Richard Glover and Susanne Gervay.
