Read, talk and share
Our libraries are working with the Reading Agency to use the proven power of reading to tackle loneliness and support mental health.
Bracknell Forest libraries will be joining in the scheme though events, services and activities.
We have a busy schedule of virtual events planned for March.
Book of the month
In rural Somerset in the middle of a blizzard, the unthinkable happens: a school is under siege.
Children and teachers barricade themselves into classrooms, the library, the theatre. The headmaster lies wounded in the library, unable to help his trapped students and staff. Outside, a police psychiatrist must identify the gunmen, while parents gather desperate for news.
In 3 intense hours, all must find the courage to stand up to evil and save the people they love.
Children's book of the month
An accessible child-centred story about self-acceptance and the importance of opening up to those closest to you.
Becky and Josh are almost-twins, with 2 mums and the same anonymous donor dad.
Josh can't wait until he's eighteen, the legal age when he can finally contact his donor, and he'll do anything to find out more - even if it involves lying.
Becky can't stop thinking about her new friend, Carli. Could her feelings for Carli be a sign of something more?
Becky and Josh both want their parents to be proud of them...but right now, they're struggling to even accept themselves.
