Bookstart Bear Club

Free books and fun for pre-school children

Pre-school children are invited to take part in this year's Bookstart Bear Club taking place at all Nottinghamshire libraries.

Bookstart is the national programme that gives the gift of FREE books to children around eight months, 18 months and three years, along with guidance materials for parents and carers. But Bookstart packs are only half of the gift to children and their families. The other more lasting gift is the message of enjoying books together. We want Nottinghamshire children to develop a lifelong love of books.

The Bookstart Bear Club reward scheme aims to encourage reading and library use. Each time a child visits a Nottinghamshire library they will receive a stamp and after collecting six stamps, they will receive a certificate - one of 10 to collect.

Bookstart supports you to enjoy books with your child from as early an age as possible.
