Open to parents attending our regular Bookstart Bear Club sessions at 6 libraries across the Rochdale Borough.

Gifting of our World Book Night books (160 copies of ‘My Everything’) will take place at the end of each of our scheduled Bookstart Bear Club sessions which take place each week at 6 libraries aimed at families with children under 4. Our Early Years Library Worker will gift the books (in a small bag also containing bookmarks, etc. about library services, e.g. e-books, audiobooks) to parents who attend with their children, with the message that a good book is perfect ‘me time’ and that parents with young children deserve time to read. Also, that there is research to show that children are more likely to pick up books if they see their parents reading. Books will also be gifted to parents of young children attending targeted Children’s Centres in the borough during w/b 23rd April.
