Aberdeen City Libraries have introduced an appointment based Click and Collect service. Staff will provide a selection of books based on a family’s reading preferences, to collect on appointment. This means that families will once again be able to benefit from borrowing items including children’s picture books, early readers and dual language books from Aberdeen City Libraries. You can find out more about how to access this service by following the link https://www.aberdeencity.gov.uk/services/libraries-and-archives/click-and-collect.
It is also not too late to participate in Aberdeen Reads, their summer reading challenge, which runs until 29 August 2020. Anybody can participate as an individual or as a group. Everyone who registers for Aberdeen Reads will be entered into a prize draw. Taking part in the Challenge will support children to develop language and literacy skills by encouraging all kinds of reading – instructions, recipes, picture books, sharing stories with younger siblings. Many of the suggested challenges can be easily carried out as part of a daily routine and it’s a great way to encourage the whole family to read together. Information on the Challenge and how to register is on our website www.aberdeencity.gov.uk/aberdeenreads,
Finally, Aberdeen City Libraries continue to provide a wide range of ebooks, eaudio books, ecomics, emagazines and online resources suitable for all ages and abilities. They are also delivering regular Bookbug sessions via their YouTube channel and Facebook page.
