Support your local library!
We all understand the great role our local libraries play in the education of our young people. We also know that they are under threat. Increase the book issue rate and cultivate children's love of reading and life-long learning by holding your next literacy sessions at your local library.
We make it easy to organise.
- Take things to the next level and support a valuable community resource at the same time.
- Get out of the classroom for the day and inspire children with a new learning experience.
- Empower children by showing them how they can tap into a tremendous source of knowledge and encourage learning outside of school hours.
