East Riding Children Encouraged To Do 'Big Spring Read-In'

East Riding Children Encouraged To Do 'Big Spring Read-In'

Published by Karen Liu at 1:50pm 20th April 2020.

East Riding residents are being urged to 'keep calm and carry on reading' as the council encourages the 'Big Spring Read-In'.

The aim is to encourage children to read every week and submit online reviews.

They will then receive certificates after they have submitted five, ten and 15 reviews.

The Big Spring Read-In is mainly for children aged between four and eleven, but is open to others as well and it starts from now until 19th July. 

To take part, the child must be a member of East Riding Libraries, and each week fills in an online review form, to say what they thought about what they have read that week.

They simply include their email address and the location of the East Riding Library they usually visit. They can read anything, whether books, eBooks or eAudiobooks.

After submitting five, ten or 15 reviews, each child will receive a certificate to print at home. Participants are asked to submit one review a week.

Councillor Shaun Horton, portfolio holder for tourism, culture and leisure, said:

“It is absolutely essential that children do not have a ‘dip’ in their reading during this period when most cannot attend school or visit their local library.

I am delighted that we are able to launch the Big Spring Read-In to allow children to continue to practice their reading skills and discuss the joy of reading.”
