At the end of 2020, The Reading Agency received significant funding from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport to expand Reading Friends activities across England. This investment funded 102 public library authorities to set up Reading Friends activities. Find out more about the impact of the Reading Friends rollout as part of the Read, Talk, Share campaign during 2021 and the difference it has made to participants.
We’re delighted to be launching our new phase and announcing that more public library authorities across the UK can now get involved with Reading Friends.
This next phase will run from 1 October 2021 - 30 September 2022 and is a flexible start date so you can sign up after 1 October but to get the benefits of a full year, we encourage you to join as soon as possible.
Please get in touch if you’re a library authority and would like to find out more at email@example.com. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
If you’re not a library authority, please Register your Interest for the future.
