World Book Day – access for all

This year we are encouraged to celebrate the magic of books and reading.
We wanted to share some of our favourite recourses to help you get into a good book and enjoy the new worlds you might discover.
Reading can open up a world of possibilities and enhance the imagination, which is why it is so important for every child (and adult) to be able to enjoy the books of their choice.
Chatterbooks

This is our very own club that we invite you to join. Come along and have a chat about the latest books you have enjoyed and hear some recommendations from others too. Currently meeting as a virtual group this may be accessed by phone as well as the internet with video. If you have any questions about joining, please do call us on 01243 828555.

Next meeting is March 29th, 11am.

 

Listen on your smart speaker

Did you know you can access different audio libraries through your smart speakers and other tech devices? and many online books also have text-to-speech functions too. If you would like assistance and support with accessing these technologies please give us a call on 01243 828555.
