Books had never been Mike's thing but thanks to Plymouth Libraries, Reading Ahead and the Summer Reading Challenge, he now regularly reads with his six year-old son Carlton and developed a reading habit of his own.
Lecturer Liz Arbós uses Reading Ahead to engage students attending her Saturday pre-Entry eSOL classes at Northampton College with reading for pleasure. She told us recently about the positive impact this has had.
One in six adults struggles to read. Reading Ahead supports young people and adults who struggle with the written word or who don’t read for pleasure. Reading Groups for Everyone celebrates all the good things that happen when people come together to share reading and Reading Well supports people's health and wellbeing. Because everything changes when we read.
