Children’s book week events

Have your say

Seen the film? Now read the book.

Visit your local library in Barnsley during Children’s Book Week from Monday until Sunday, October 9, and look out for a display of your favourite children’s books which have been made into films.

Any child who visits the library during Book Week can be entered in a prize draw to have a free DVD loan.

Coun Jenny Platts, Barnsley Council cabinet member for adults and communities, said: “Children’s Book Week is a chance to celebrate reading for pleasure.

“We hope that children will take the opportunity to visit their local library, whether to discover new books or revisit stories they have enjoyed as films.”
