Big picture
This year the library has adopted the hashtag #AHStimes20. The idea behind this is that we encourage all students, staff and caregivers to read for 20 minutes a day. Follow us on socials (Instagram: @ahsbrisbanelibrary) for reading ideas, student book reviews, and other promotions that support this.
