It’s been a jam-packed, busy and inspirational National Year of Reading 2012, but we finally made it! With hundreds of successful projects, programs and events throughout the year, it has truly been an amazing year for reading.
This year, the Love2ReadTV project has been fortunate to receive the support of WeVideo, a leading cloud-based video editing solution. With entries and editing being performed from various locations around Australia, it was important to have easy access to all video editing files at any time.
Love2ReadTV is an exciting video collection celebrating Australia’s National Year of Reading 2012! The collection features many Australian author and librarians, with the full Librarians episode to be published shortly.
The project is coordinated by Timothy Chan, Friend of the National Year of Reading. Read Tim’s interview at Kids Book Review!
