Children's book giveaway this Saturday

This Saturday, 13th September, Yate Library will be giving away 50 copies of bestselling book Diary of a Wimpy Kid to local children. The giveaway is in support of Good Morning Britain’s ‘Just Read’ campaign, to encourage parents and carers to spend ten minutes reading with their children every day.

Yate Library is one of 200 libraries across the UK taking part in the ‘Just Read’ giveaway which is supported by national charity The Reading Agency and children’s publisher Puffin. The campaign comes as leading charities, teachers, parents and businesses have come together to form  ‘Read On. Get On.’ It aims to support parents and teachers to get all 11 year olds reading well by 2025.

As well as the giveaway, children who visit the library on 13th September will be able to enjoy quizzes, puzzles, games and competitions. Children can come to the library dressed as Greg Heffley (the Wimpey Kid) or in something orange.

This event marks the end of the summer activities at Yate library. Thousands of children took part in the Summer Reading Challenge.
