Cambridgeshire Libraries have now launched their First Steps Library Club (FSLC) for all 0-4s living in Fenland and East Cambridgeshire who are not yet library members. Funded by the Opportunity Area, this project hopes to encourage all under 5s to become active members of their local library service.
Library membership opens up a wonderful world of stories and information and helps parents support their children’s learning for free. Please let any families you are working with know about the scheme. And, of course, you too can join, if you have children under 5 and live in Fenland or East Cambridgeshire.
Once a member, each child will be entered in a monthly prize draw to win a £50 high street voucher and can start collecting the three special First Steps Library Club Gifts.
Club members will also receive news about fabulous new books to share and fun online activities, as well as special library events. The latter will initially take place online, but will hopefully become library-based, once it is safe to do so.
