The schools break up for the summer very soon and Haddenham Community Library is launching Leader Reader sessions to keep children reading throughout the long holiday and hopefully to see an improvement (or at least, to minimise the 'backsliding' that often occurs during the long holiday) before returning to school in September.

Go along with your child on Tuesday and/or Thursday (10am-12noon) each week from 29th July and there will be helpers available to sit and listen to your child read.

Other holiday activities include free craft sessions every Saturday (10am-12.noon) on the theme of Myths and Legends — to tie in with the summer reading challenge — and an Animal Edutainment session on Friday, 15th August (11am-12noon). Tickets (£3.50) for this are available to buy at the library; the craft sessions are hosted on the basis of 'turn up and join in'.

A children's knitting group is running every Friday of the summer holidays, but unfortunately this is already fully booked.
