Reading changes everything!

1 July 2014

Adults in Brent have spent the first half of the year reading.

Over 200 adults with basic literary skills have read six books in six months as part of The Reading Agency's Six Book Challenge.

One in six adults struggles to read. The Six Book Challenge improves the chances in life for people who find reading difficult by building their reading confidence and motivation.

Across Brent libraries, over 1000 adults have joined and over 200 completed all six books.  

A celebration ceremony for the completers will take place on Saturday 5 July at 3pm in the Conference Hall at Brent Civic Centre. 

Best-selling author Dorothy Koomson will be giving a speech and The Mayor of Brent will also attend to present the certificates.
