Croydon Libraries are working in partnership with the BBC on the RaW - Read more and write better campaign. The RaW campaign will last for 3 years and it hopes to encourage people who have forgotten the joy of reading to start reading for pleasure again.
Croydon Library staff can help people improve their reading and writing skills by showing them the BBC RaW online website. You can find this website by clicking on this link www.bbc.co.uk/raw.
Celebrities such as David Spinx who plays Keith Miller in EastEnders have recommended books that they have enjoyed and hope others will enjoy too!
Why not try reading a RaW Recommended Read?
Croydon Libraries have copies of the RaW Recommended Reads so visit your local Croydon Library, where membership is free and it is easy to join, and borrow a RaW Recommended Read.
Croydon Libraries also have a RaW EastEnders DVD and BBC RaW magazine which you can find in the Get On collections at every library.
The Get On collections also have Quick Reads which are exciting new titles by authors such as Maeve Binchy, Tom Holt, Joanna Trollope and Ruth Rendell. The Quick Reads were launched to celebrate the RaW campaign and World Book Day 2006 and can be found in the Get On collections at your local Croydon Library.
