Summer Reading Challenge 2018 @ All West Berkshire Libraries
Aug 19 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 am

SUMMER READING CHALLENGE 2018

If you have a child aged 4-11 years, look out for the invitations going out through schools for them to join Mischief Makers, our Summer Reading Challenge for 2018.

Children need to be library members, then sign up in any West Berks library to receive their ‘treasure map’ reading log. Over the summer, they can collect stickers and other incentives for borrowing and reading library books – at least six books by the end of September to receive a certificate, golden medal and voucher for a free child visit to Beale Wildlife Park, near Pangbourne.

The challenge is produced by The Reading Agency and delivered by libraries across the country. This summer we’re excited to be working with Beano magazine in their 80th anniversary year, so watch out for Dennis, Gnasher and friends as children collect their stickers and solve their treasure clues.

The Summer Reading challenge is endorsed by the Department for Education. It’s FREE to take part. for more information and to get started, please ask in your local library.

Children’s Wildlife Photography Course @ The Nature Discovery Centre
Aug 22 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Photo by Bob Coyle

Learn how to take a great photograph with the expert guidance of expert wildlife photographer Iain Green. The course will start inside with an introduction to wildlife photography, camera settings and how to vary the composition of your photographs for impact and creativity. We’ll then head off to explore the nature reserve and put your new skills into action.There will be lots of hands on tuition and opportunity for photographing native wildlife. The course will finish with the presentation of certificates to all attendees.

The course is suitable for children over 8 years and older. Parents and carers need not attend so registration and booking are essential. A registration form will be in your joining instructions.

No experience or knowledge of photography is needed just enthusiasm!

Please bring your camera and instructions if you have them. We do have a limited number of compact cameras which we can lend for use on the course. Please contact the course organiser to reserve one.

Please dress for the weather, paths around the Centre and nature reserve are level but often muddy so please wear sturdy shoes or trainers.
