New Look Book Clubs For Half Term

Wood Street's holiday book clubs are getting a makeover.

In addition to the usual wide selection of books to choose from and take home, the clubs will include volunteer readers, a computer corner, as well as activities for younger children. Parents will also have the chance to sit down and have a cup of tea and a chat.

The book clubs are aimed at promoting literacy and engagement in education - both key to breaking the cycle of poverty. They are free to  attend and are aimed at children of all existing service users, most of whom have two or more young children.

BNY Mellon are providing volunteer readers for our next spooky book club on  Friday 31 October Halloween

If you are a referring agency why not encourage clients to come along? Book clubs take place at our office in central Manchester between 10 and 12 in the morning. There is no need to book.
