To mark National Libraries Day and to celebrate Read, Write, Count’s ‘Love Your Library’ campaign family entertainment group, Funbox hosted an exclusive reading of their favourite children’s books at 2pm on Saturday 6 February at Lochee Library in Dundee
Dundee families joined Funbox for a story time session where Funbox read The Twits by Roald Dahl and The Sheep-Pig by Dick King Smith.
The Read, Write, Count campaign is encouraging families to visit their local libraries and make use of the valuable services they offer. The ‘Love Your Library’ campaign aims to inspire families to visit their local library and enjoy a range of free services that can make reading, writing and counting with their child an easy, fun and enjoyable experience. Read, Write, Count is a Scottish Government-led campaign which aims to improve key numeracy and literacy skills among children in Primaries 1 to 3 across Scotland and has identified libraries as a key setting to support this.
