  • Local libraries offer great author talks and activities especially for kids such as Giggle and Wiggle, Storytime and school holiday programs. 

  • There are lots of ways you can help your community, like delivering meals to those in need, reading books to children, or door-to-door collecting for charity. Volunteering ACT has great ideas on where to start.
