Reading Ahead

Reading Ahead_Libraries

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.
