Stick at Reading

Posted on: May 17, 2016

Reading Ahead posterIt’s just over a month longer until the end of the 2015/16 Reading Ahead challenge – the deadline is 27th June. There is still time to choose 6 items to read and write a short review on each in your little yellow reading diary (ask us for one). The benefits of reading for pleasure are immense including stress reduction and vocabulary expansion. We also offer a sticker for each completed diary entry. A sticker may seem like a small reward but it is the little things that matter sometimes. There is also a certificate for completers and names will be entered into a national prize draw.

If you are signed up already you can get a digital participant badge on the VLE. Find a checklist and a survey to complete on the VLE under Library -> Services -> Reading for Pleasure.

Talking of stickers – you can find books more easily with stickers on the spine telling you whether they are reference, biographies, short stories, and easy reads. We’re also thinking of getting some customised stickers to highlight books on women’s topics and other gems of the LRC.
