With the winter nights closing in, and less time for getting out and about in daylight, there's nothing like sitting in front of a warm cosy fire with the family! Why not spend that time wisely, and join in our Light up your Nights Winter Programme!
We invite all adults and children to read or listen to four books this winter -it can be physical books, eBooks or audiobooks – factual or fiction, and we have a great selection of prizes, from tablets to book vouchers! Reading your way through the winter is a great way to keep well this winter, and we highly recommend it!
