1,837 Books Already Borrowed this Term
We have lent out a staggering number of books - 1,837 - already this term with 81.6% of those books being borrowed by our students across all age ranges. That’s amazing but our ongoing job is to try to encourage everyone to borrow regularly and so we will be working on new ways in which we can inspire and encourage borrowing over the coming weeks. If your child isn’t a regular borrower or is perhaps even a reluctant reader please do let us know how we might encourage them better.
Helping your children to enjoy reading is one of the most important things you can do as a parent and is well worth the investment of your time and energy. Children learn reading skills in school, but often they come to associate reading with work and not pleasure. As a result, they can lose their desire to read but it is that desire — their curiosity and interest to read more and varied material — which re-enforces learning and helps them to use their reading skills successfully.
We invite you to join us in “Getting Children Excited about Reading” as we roll out out a range of new events and activities over the coming weeks.
