Young City Reads in Worthing

Wonderful news for the kids of Worthing: four years after the
launch in Brighton and Hove, our Young City Reads project plans to give hours of gripping reading and fun to all the kids in our town.

Many classes have already joined in and are waiting with trepidation to start the adventure on World Book Day, it couldn’t have been any other date, could it? For ten weeks these lucky children will share their reading, receive lots of dazzling free activities and will have a laugh with the absurd situations Fizzlebert Stump gets into.

We are not only talking about schools either, the entire town is working together to make this an even bigger event. We are delighted to say that Worthing libraries are happy to welcome class visits, to talk about the book and see the place where our Fizzlebert ends up, after running away from the circus.

We are really pleased that a place like Worthing, with lots of
young families and a great sense of community has this
teachers, spread the word and let’s fun begin.

Shared Reading Taster Sessions 2016


We were delighted to be awarded some funding by West Sussex County Council recently to deliver some Shared Reading Taster sessions at libraries across West Sussex. The idea is for West Sussex Library Service to then follow up on these sessions to launch several shared reading groups at Libraries in the region.

It’s been such an inspiring experience so far. We have delivered workshops in Crawley and Horsham meeting readers of all ages. The groups are a fantastic social opportunity to meet new faces and to read books you may never have chosen yourself. It keeps your imagination running wild and your mind fresh with discussion!

If you’d like to find out more about these new shared reading groups in West Sussex (which will be launching in Sept/Oct 2016) contact Principal Librarian: Jackie Manners –
