The Reading Hour

The Reading Hour is on again this year on 16 August from 6pm - 7pm!

Reading for an hour or sharing a book with your child for at least an hour a week is the aim for The Reading Hour in 2016.

Sharing stories and rhymes with your child from an early age helps develop a great reading habit. A good way to find out more is to visit your local LINC or library and join in a Storytime or Rock & Rhyme session.

The Reading Hour is for everyone, there are events for adults, children and families.

Check out these special events!
