Read with Me sessions at Crayford Library

Read with Me offers one-to-one reading sessions with one of our reading buddies. It's a chance for your child to read out loud and improve their literacy skills.

Read with Me sessions will be running at Crayford Library throughout the summer so that children’s skills and confidence with reading can be maintained during the summer holidays.

Between 23 July and 29 August, sessions will be held on Tuesday mornings from 10am to 12 noon and Thursday afternoon from 2pm until 4pm.

Please book your session with staff at Crayford Library.
