Read, Write, Count is a national campaign by Scottish Book Trust to improve the literacy and numeracy skills of Scotland’s children. As part of the campaign, every child in Primary 2-3 receives a free bag with books and activities to support their learning. It aims to build parents’ confidence, and encourage families to include easy and fun reading, writing and counting activities in their everyday lives.

Libraries play a key role in the delivery of Read, Write, Count. Come along to this session to find out what you can expect in this year’s Read, Write, Count bags, including free resources and activity ideas to try in public library settings. Get inspiration on how to make the most of Read, Write, Count and hear about how other public libraries have embedded the programme into their work with children and families.

This training session on Tuesday 23rd August, 4.30-5.30pm, is suitable for public library staff. The webinar will be held on Microsoft Teams, with meeting details and a link to access the session shared in advance. Please register here.
