Wakefield Libraries would like to hear from voluntary and community sector organisations and groups that would be interested in taking part in Reading Ahead. Reading Ahead is an initiative that started in 2008 and since then has helped many adults and young people build in confidence and benefit from far greater opportunities in everyday life.

Reading Ahead invites participants to pick six reads and record, rate and review them in a diary in order to get a certificate. The programme isn't just about books – it's about newspapers, magazines and websites too. The aim is that participants challenge themselves to try something new and discover that reading can be a pleasure in the process.

Run through public Libraries in partnership with The Reading Agency, Wakefield Libraries can help to facilitate this with diaries pens certificates and reading material, but the choice of what to read is ultimately the participants.

If your organisation or group is interested in taking part please email dbartram@wakefield.gov.uk or acassels@wakefield.gov.uk
