Reading for Pleasure

New research carried out for The Reading Agency has found the benefits reading for pleasure has on the person and on society as a whole.  Everyone is aware of the role reading for pleasure plays in educational outcomes but the findings of this research indicate the benefits on a person’s well being.

So by encouraging children who use our libraries to read for pleasure we are contributing to them being happy and healthy, not just now but in the future.
