Paint the Town REaD (PTTR) is an early literacy initiative that encourages everyone to read, talk, sing and rhyme with children from birth so that they are ready for reading and writing by the time they start school.

This community initiative started in Parkes NSW in 1996 and has now expanded to over 50 local government areas across Australia.

About Camden Paint the Town REaD

Camden Paint the Town REaD's journey started in 2016 when Binyang the Bookasaurus hatched from an egg at the first Camden PTTR reading day held at Narellan Library

Our goal is to introduce Camden kid's to reading, talking, singing and rhyming in their early years, and continue to grow this love of reading in their school years and adulthood.
