Kidderminster 'Reading Hack'

Published Friday, 5th February 2016

Young people aged 13-24 are being invited to take part in a new project at Kidderminster Library called 'Reading Hack'.

'Reading Hack' is about encouraging young people to read more, looking at new ways of turning reading on its head and planning projects based on new concepts. It is led by young people on a voluntary basis and gives them opportunities to learn new skills which can be put onto college applications, CVs or university applications. 

The free event will be held at Kidderminster Library from 3-4.30pm on Saturday 20 February.

The project is organised by the Reading Agency in partnership with the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, launched in late 2015 and is now going live across the country.

Hannah Smith-Edwards, Kidderminster Library Customer Assistant said: "This is an exciting opportunity for young people to really get involved with the way the library works and organise events that appeal to them."
