Library sessions to get families reading

Libraries around the county will be celebrating National Bookstart Week with special story, rhyme and activity sessions aimed at inspiring families to read together.

The year’s theme, Jungle Adventures, is based on Giles Andreae’s picture book Rumble in the Jungle. Copies of the book will be given away to families with children under school age who attend the free events during the week, which runs from Monday to Friday.

A session will be held in Wooler Library on Wednesday, from 10.30am to 11.30am.
