The Summer Read @ Brimbank Libraries

The Summer Read is on again at Brimbank Libraries and with the warm weather already here, it’s time to sit back, relax and lose yourself in a great Victorian book.

The Summer Read is a program of the State Library of Victoria and Public Libraries Network Victoria that celebrates the diversity of Victorian writing and encourages Victorians to take time out with a good read.  

The ten Summer Read books are great recent releases either written by a Victorian author, set in Victoria or about Victorians, and all are free to borrow from participating public libraries throughout the state.
