KATE Green, MP for Stretford and Urmston is supporting a campaign run by charity The Reading Agency to encourage all primary school children to join their nearest library and take part in this year’s Summer Reading Challenge - the UK’s largest reading for pleasure promotion for primary school children.

Research shows the scheme increases children’s reading range and their enjoyment of reading.

Children will also be encouraged to share their love of reading by recommending a book to friends,

Kate said, “I hope parents, grandparents and carers will take their children to the library to sign up for the Summer Reading Challenge.

“It’s free, inclusive and makes reading fun - a vital ingredient in building literacy. Last year 2,026 children in Tafford took part in the Challenge. I hope we can increase that number this year and show local libraries what a valuable asset they are to us and our community.”
