Young bookworms will be flocking to Wolverhampton's libraries during National Bookstart Week (4-9 June, 2018).

 

The annual event aims to raise awareness of the importance of reading and sharing books with young children, and there are a host of activities for pre-school children throughout the week.

 

There will be special Baby Book Time sessions with the Bookstart Bear and the Bookstart Bird Boogie at the following times:

Councillor John Reynolds, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for City Economy, said: "Getting into the habit of sharing stories, books and rhymes every day – even if only for 10 minutes – can transform a child's life, as they explore their world and make bonds, while building skills and a life-long love of reading.

 

“We're looking forward to welcoming families to join in the National Bookstart Week celebrations at our libraries."
