Susan Toner from Haddenham Community Library (@HadComLibrary) has a message for all parents in Haddenham
The importance of READING is essential for us all but especially for CHILDREN. Books fuel the imagination, and this is terribly important particularly now. With the help of our friends we have been’ reimagining’ our CHILDREN’S book stock. As a result of this you will find a large number of NEW story books suitable for ages 7 to 11 on the shelves. They were recommended by the Children’s Librarian in Aylesbury Central Library and all these books came from The Book House in Thame, a really excellent independent book shop who we use and recommend for their expertise, knowledge and helpfulness. These will all be in place on Tuesday
Additional support has come from The Co-op who as part of their commitment to the community to celebrate their arrival in Haddenham have given us a generous donation. We have used the money to buy two clever mobile CHILDREN’S bookshelves made by a company in Hertfordshire, so that children will be able to reach picture book bags for themselves. The ‘lucky dip’ selection of 10 bagged picture books and five board books is proving a great hit with children and parents alike. So, we are currently working on developing ‘Read Me’ book bundles designed to help parents find books suitable for their children’s reading level ability.

I will leave you with another wonderful insight from Albert Einstein,
“If you want your children to be intelligent read them fairy stories. If you want them to be more intelligent read them more fairy stories”.
