A recent report from the Institute of Education shows that children who read for pleasure made more progress in maths, vocabulary and spelling than those who rarely read. In particular, reading for pleasure between the ages of 10 and 16 was found to be more important for children’s cognitive development than having a parent with a degree.In the libraries we have an excellent collection of fiction and non-fiction, including many of the latest titles. Whether you like funny, crime, horror or adventure we have the book for you – just ask your librarians! We are open to suggestions too, so if there is a book that we don’t have but you think we should stock let us know.
Look out for more library competitions coming soon.
