Bookstart, inspiring a love of books in every child

Bookstart is the national programme that encourages all parents and carers to enjoy books with babies and children.

Bear's Reading Adventure

Bear's Reading Adventure has begun

Hillingdon Libraries are delighted to introduce a brand new resource - Bear's Reading Adventure - a colourful sticker storybook from Booktrust to encourage families with children aged 1-4 to visit their local library and enjoy books and storytimes together. The story follows the BookTrust blue bear mascot on his reading adventure, which takes him to the park, supermarket and library. Children can earn stamps and stickers to complete their book by attending storytimes and borrowing books. To join your child, or get more information, visit your local library.
