Readathon event celebrates books

Have your say

Authors, storytellers and book fans are being sought to take part in a Sheffield library’s first ‘readathon’.

The event is being organised by the Friends of Zest Group at Upperthorpe Library from 1.30pm to 9.30pm on Friday, January 24.

It will start again at 7am on Saturday 25 until midday.

Adults and children will be reading out loud from a selection of books.

They can read just one sentence, a paragraph, a chapter or more, while others listen and enjoy the stories.

There will also be craft activities.

The aim is to support the city’s libraries which are currently under threat of closure.

Anyone interested in taking part or finding out more is asked to email or call Davo Smith on 0114 232 1335 or 07941 049 459.
