Children could sign up at Burbage Community Library, then read at least six library books of your choice to collect special collector cards and other incentives along the way – all for FREE! There was a website and an app too to add to the fun.
There was no other free reading activity that involved so many children, introduced families to the library, encouraged children to choose books freely and independently and was endorsed by parents, teachers and the department for education.
