Where do you get your ten minutes? #ReadOnGetOn

readongeton

As a library, we understand the importance of reading and literacy in a community. We’re working hard to inspire a love of reading in children from a young age with Rhythm and Rhyme sessions for the under 5’s and an abundance of children’s events throughout the year. That’s why we’re so excited to be a part of the Read On. Get On national campaign that aims to get children reading, in schools, in libraries and at home.

The Read On. Get On campaign has brought to light how many children are leaving primary school without this key skill, and have set themselves a mission to change this- for good. By 2025, this national campaign aims to ensure that all children are entering secondary school as confident readers. But they understand that such a large task cannot be undertaken without everyone’s support and they are calling on parents, grandparents, teachers, politicians and celebrities to help support this scheme.

Everyone can do something- just ten minutes a day reading with a child can inspire a love of reading that lasts a lifetime.

On Thursday 9 April and Friday 10 April 2015, we’ll be sharing on Facebook & Twitter where we get our ten minutes, but we want to know where you get yours…

Here’s some of your friendly Blackpool library assistants reading in Central Library…

But we can get our ten minutes anywhere, even on Blackpool’s Big Wheel…
