Children rewarded for their reading
5:00pm Saturday 5th October 2013 in News
YOUNG bookworms will be recognised for their reading skills during a ceremony.
Youngsters from Upton who have completed a summer reading challenge organised by staff at the town’s library will be presented with medals and certificates by mayor Peter Webb at 2.30pm on Saturday.
This year’s challenge had a ‘creepy house’ theme and asked children to read six books over the summer holidays.
Upton library manager Daphne Telfer said: “This fun challenge gave us the opportunity to help children improve their literacy levels and encourage reading for pleasure. This summer reading challenge has grown in popularity with more and more children successfully completing or exceeding the challenge.
“We are delighted to have such enthusiastic youngsters in Upton and are pleased that they regularly visit the library to participate in our activities.”
