Other organisations supporting Reading Together®

Do other organisations provide some support for the Reading Together® programme?

Yes. For example, in 2015 the New Zealand Book Council expanded their Writers in Schools programme to create The Otahuhu Writers in Schools Project, an innovative collaboration with the National Library's Services to Schools programme and the Otahuhu Community Library to support a cluster of five Otahuhu primary/intermediate Reading Together® schools. Further details are available via The Otahuhu Writers in Schools Project: Paula Green and Fairburn School. For information on the 2016 Project, see The second annual Otahuhu Writers in Schools community project. For more recent information and videos, please see Writers in Communities - Ōtāhuhu, Auckland, Writers in Communities - Ōtāhuhu Book Launch Nov 2018 and Hopes and dreams in kids' poems.

Many community libraries throughout New Zealand have supported the Reading Together® programme over the years. For instance, quoting from the Porirua Library website:

Porirua Library is a proud supporter of the ... Reading Together® programme, and is a great venue for final/graduation meetings - we'll even provide goodie bags.
