Did you know that the second week of June is National Bookstart Week? No? Well neither did we. You can find out more here

From Monday 9th June to Sunday 15th June, there will be events across the country to encourage families to read with their children every day.

The theme this year is 'My Hero' and Haddenham Community Library has two story times when children can come dressed as their favourite hero or super-hero.

Tuesday's pre-school story time (9.15-9.45am) is on the theme of heroes and on Saturday, 14th June, in addition to the fortnightly craft session, there'll be a 'My Hero' story time (11am-12noon).
