Spring into Storytime is part of a National Right to Read Initiative, which is an annual programme to support literacy and reading development across local authorities and is led locally by the public library service.
Spring into Storytime aims to deliver systematic literacy support at local level, identifying a standard service offer and bringing together the knowledge and experience of skilled staff in local authority services and local agencies.
Public libraries’ annual Spring into Storytime programme launched on April 1st and promises to bring the magic of Storytime to homes across the country. This year, Spring into Storytime is moving online again and we have a host of virtual events and activities, all based around reading and listening to stories, which families can enjoy at home.
The programme provides an ideal opportunity for children to take time to enjoy a variety of stories through online storytimes by library staff and authors and experience reading as an activity which is fun, entertaining and allows families to share this happy time together.
See an outline of our events below, and watch this space!
