June marks start of
Bookstart Week in Wirral
NATIONAL Bookstart Week will see Wirral Libraries holding several events, including
under 5's at West Kirby Library, on 7 June 2016, from 10am to 12pm (noon), and a book pack giveaway
in Liscard's Cherry Tree Centre, this Friday, 3 May 2016.
Bookstart provides bags filled with free books to parents with children aged
under 1, and runs throughout the year at all Wirral libraries.
Last month, more than 100 Bookstart Baby bags were given out by Birkenhead
Central Library at The Pyramids, Birkenhead, after which, Diane Mitchell,
Strategic Librarian said:- "Our promotion received an amazing response,
parents seemed very grateful to receive the packs. We'd like to thank The
Pyramids Shopping Centre for allowing us to do this."
Derek Millar, Commercial Director at The Pyramids Shopping Centre said:-
"It was a pleasure to host this Bookstart promotion and we hope to work with
Diane and the team again in future." Parents can collect free baby book bags at any Wirral Library, providing their
child is under 1 years old.
