Creepy House proves popular reading in Middlesbrough
5:42pm Friday 23rd August 2013 in News
THE summer reading challenge and its Creepy House theme has been a holiday hit with young visitors to Middlesbrough libraries.
More than 1,000 starter packs have been handed out to youngsters, with the aim of preventing the annual summer dip in reading.
A series of fun and interactive events linked to reading and learning have been well attended including sessions from Zoolab, Circurama, Kando Arts and Lip Lee.
Children taking part earn stickers, certificates and awards for reading, and can also be credited for awards from the Children’s University.
In partnership with Active Leisure Middlesbrough, children can earn a free family swim for reading four books.
Some awards will be presented at individual branches, with others handed out at a special ceremony at the Central Library on Thursday, August 29.
