Press Release: Register now for Family Library Summer Reading Scheme

Young bookworms are being urged to put their name down now to take part in this year’s Summer Reading Scheme at the Family Library.

As always, the theme of the reading scheme is being kept a closely guarded secret until the official launch on June 28, but the library is already registering youngsters to take part.

Last year the library ran a hugely successful scheme with activities centred on Roald Dahl favourite Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, with everything from armpit fudge-making sessions to writing and poster-making workshops.

It saw a 30 per cent increase in participation, with more than 400 children taking part in the challenge.

Librarian in charge Mary Cousins said: ‘Last year we set the bar really high with a summer of fun, but we’re even more excited about what we’ve got planned for this year. All will be revealed next month!

‘We’re taking names to register for the scheme now – you don’t need to wait for the launch date. So we hope to have even more children taking part this year.’
