Sharing Stories

family listening to audiobooks

The Sharing Stories project aims to encourage people to enjoy literature through books, eBooks or activities.

Activities will include family storytime sessions, supporting English as a second language and shared reading with adults with a learning disability. We're kicking things off with audiobooks awareness.

You can bookmark your favourite points and control the speed of the narrator’s voice. It even remembers your place when it’s turned off.
