Summer Reading Challenge 2016

Each summer in association with the Reading Agency, libraries and schools nationwide take part in the Summer Reading Challenge.

The SRC is an annual event dedicated to encouraging children, particularly 4 - 11 yr olds, to continue reading throughout the summer holidays. This can be a period where their interest and thus their reading development can take a significant turn, one which is not necessarily easily reversed when they go back to school in September.

SHAKEspeare's Stories - Classes in Kirklees Libraries

As part of this year's Shakespeare Week celebrations, we took our specifically created 'SHAKEspeare's Stories' (click to read more) to Kirklees for a week.

Here we worked with the library service to host a series of primary school classes from the area, in the libraries, and challenge them to some themed story writing challenges and a bit of gaming too.
