LIBRARIES GEAR UP FOR "BIG FRIENDLY READ" THIS SUMMER
Cheshire West and Chester Council's libraries have a wide range of events planned for this year's Summer Reading Challenge. The Roald Dahl inspired "Big Friendly Read", which officially starts on 16 July.
Events planned to support the Challenge include animal handling events likes the 'Zoolab Animal Handling Show', the 'Get me out of here — Creepy Crawly Show' and 'Animals Take Over', as well as talks by Chester Zoo Safari Rangers.
The Summer Reading Challenge encourages children aged 4 to 11 to read six books during the long summer holiday. There is a different theme each year. Children can read any library books they like — fact books, joke books, picture books, e-books or even audio download books.
There will be rewards including stickers and "rainbow glasses" when they visit the library after reading a couple of titles. There's a certificate and medal for everyone who reads at least six books.
Children who take part in the Summer Reading Challenge return to school for the new school year as more fluent, confident, happy readers. Children's reading can 'dip' during the long summer break.
The Summer Reading Challenge is open to all school children and is designed for all reading abilities.
Just visit your local branch from Saturday 16 July onwards in order to take part. It's all free and if you're not currently a library member you can join for free either online or at any Cheshire West Library.
