Library Adventures Live! 


We are launching Library Adventures Live! at 11am on Tuesday 14th July. Each week we will be streaming a fabulous event for children to join in at home or at school. There’ll be authors reading from their work and answering your questions, illustrators running draw-alongs and sketching your suggestions and an amazing variety of inspiring and creative activities to do. Each entertaining adventure will be streamed live on Tuesdays at 11am but will be available to catch up with later.

Library Adventures Live! is a magnificent online programme of events for children aged 4 – 11 to reengage them with reading. Children can watch and join in with their families at home, teachers can use the sessions with children in school or may even use the sessions to support home schooling. The fun adventures are designed to encourage reading for pleasure and stimulate creativity. From storytelling, Draw Alongs, poetry and creative activities to do at home, there’s something for everyone. The diverse programme will include sessions designed to engage reluctant readers, playful activities for younger children and updates on what’s trending in children’s fiction.

We kick on in style on Tuesday 14th July with the fabulous children’s author and poet, Joseph Coelho, Kirklees Libraries has a bookalicious feast of activities to entertain children this summer and make learning fun into the future..

Library Adventures Live! is not just for lockdown, it’s for the long term!
