Family events and activities take place in all our libraries during the month of December, to support the involvement of the whole family in children’s reading.
Family Time at your Library activities are provided to engage family members in the enjoyment of reading and sharing stories. The whole family are also introduced to collections of children’s books, e-books and e-audio books.
The Family Time at your Library events aim to support a family-focused approach to reading with children as part of the national Right to Read programme and to increase awareness of the benefits of reading and promote reading as a fun, recreational activity for children.
Contact your local library service for details of family events and activities this December.
