Reading can be great for your mind; it has been found that during reading, our minds can feel a similar experience as meditation. Reading can help the body and mind relax, improves concentration, helps to find inner calmness, gives better sleeping patterns, lowers stress levels and the best one, lets you use your imagination!

One awesome thing about reading is that there are so many options, from horror, romance, crime, action, thriller and mystery, the list goes on and on.

Sometimes we can’t get our hands on a book and that’s ok because there’s heaps online as well. But, what some of us youth workers love to do is get the physical copy and sit, relax and read the pages.

Wyndham Library patrons can access a wide range of eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines, movies and TV shows for free during the temporary closure.
