Newport Libraries supports this national initiative from the Reading Agency which supports people to read for pleasure.
The Reading Agency says:
- One in six people struggles to read
- Reading Ahead is designed to help people improve their reading skills and develop a love of reading
- 45,000 people took part in Reading Ahead in 2015-16
- Survey respondents say taking part in Reading Ahead boosts their reading confidence
People taking part are asked to pick six reads - these could be books, newspapers, magazines, websites etc - and record, rate and review them in a diary.
Completed diaries can be entered into a national prize draw to win some great prizes.
You can collect a Reading Ahead diary from any Newport library - just ask a member of staff.
Read more about the scheme, share your thoughts on what you read and enter competitions on the Reading Ahead site.
