Opening up the world of books is a gift that will forever give back and there is something very special about sitting with a child and listening to them read. For those of us with older children it is a time that we can quickly forget.
The library is now run with a small team of volunteers, today we were lucky to have two of us, one to run the library and one to support individual reading with Year 1.
The moment a child finishes a book, a page or even just remembers a word is wonderful to be involved in. Supporting reading as a volunteer is a vital role, one that I know has a direct effect on children’s education.
I look forward to spending more time both in the library and supporting reading – if you fancy joining our little team, even for just a couple of hours a week please come and say hi or contact the office.
