Children who read for pleasure achieve more in school but, more importantly, as detailed in research from the National Literacy Trust, children and young people who like to read are three times more likely to have better mental health than those who don’t.

Join the Manchester Poetry Library for their first family ‘Love to Read’ session. Whatever your age, whatever your reading ability; come long and enjoy sharing poetry. With multi-lingual storytelling and activities for younger children and drop in discussion groups for teens and young adults, as well as 10,000 poetry books in many language and on many topics, this will be a relaxing and engaging afternoon for the whole family.
