Author, educator and local literacy network leader, Catherine Lenahan, recently brought her new series of independent reading comics ‘The Map’ to share with children and families in Newton Aycliffe Library.
During the Saturday morning session, Catherine, who is also a DCC Thrive volunteer, supported families to think about participating in the National Literacy Trust’s ‘Take 10 Challenge’ which encourages everyone to read for 10 minutes every day to improve well-being and support the development of literacy skills.
