Lend a Story

We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded a three-year grant from The National Lottery Community Fund to run our new "Lend a Story" project at over 100 libraries across England.

Each participating library will be paired with a local special school and a class from that school will visit the library for a storytelling session with parents and library staff observing. There will then be a multi-sensory storytelling training session for parents and library staff. Each library will receive three of our books and in the afternoon there will be a session for library staff on how to set up a lending scheme for parents.

All parents are welcome to attend the free storytelling training in the morning from 10am to 1pm. Confirmed sessions are as follows:

  • 10/05/19 Orpington Library, The Walnuts, Orpington BR6 0TW
  • 06/06/19 Chelmsford Central Library, County Hall, Market Road, Chelmsford CM1 1QH
  • 24/06/19 Killingworth Library, White Swan Centre, Citadel E, Killingworth, Newcastle upon Tyne NE12 6SS
  • 04/07/19 Bredbury Library, 96 George Lane, Bredbury, Stockport SK6 1DJ
  • 10/07/19 Sidcup Library, Hadlow Road, Sidcup DA14 4AQ
