FROM June 4 to June 10, Barnsley will join the UK celebrating National Bookstart week, celebrating the joys and benefits of reading with your child.

Every year, BookTrust organises National Bookstart Week and the theme for this year is Bookstart Bird Boogie and the chosen book is the brilliant A Busy Day for Birds by Lucy Cousins.

Hundreds of Bookstart Bird Boogie events up and down the country, including bird-themed Rhymetimes and Storytimes, craft and music sessions, face-painting and even birds of prey displays.

Free events are being held in libraries across the borough, and if you are interested in attending the events, click here
