Leaflets promote new reading challenge in North West
June 20, 2012 by Lyndon
Leaflets are being used to promote a new reading challenge for adults in Bolton and the wider North West region.
Leaflets are available at libraries in places like Bolton and Rochdale to promote a new initiative to encourage more reading amongst local adults. The Reading Rewards programme is being run by Time to Read, an initiative being run by the North West Libraries Reader Development Partnership, and it encourages local people over the age of 16 to read books from different categories at local libraries, with the potential to win a prize once the required number of books has been read.
The Cabinet member for economic development and customer services, Peter Williams, recently spoke about this new initiative to Rochdale Online, saying:
“Your local library is challenging you to read up to 10 books by 31 October and to try something new.
“Libraries will also have special displays as part of the challenge to inspire you.”
Local printing companies offering services like full colour printing in Bolton are often used by local authorities and organisations to promote events and initiatives like the Reading Rewards programme. By producing eye-catching posters or leaflets, more people will become aware of the initiative and therefore the number of people getting involved with the programme is likely to increase.
The Reading Rewards programme runs until the end of October 2012 and can be signed up for at any of the libraries that are participating in this programme in the North West of England.
