Family Fun at Carnegie Community Corner

Over the school holidays Back on the Map linked up with the City Libraries to be part of the nationwide Summer Reading Challenge. 25 children signed up to read a book a week throughout the summer.

Alongside the Reading Challenge we ran a Storytime session once a week for younger children and their parents and held a Teddy Bear's Picnic at the Hendon Together Event on the Town Moor to inspire children to read and to enjoy a free, safe, community learning space at the Carnegie Community Corner.
