Pamela Tulloch: Read all about it: children and libraries the ideal mix
‘Ninety per cent of brain development occurs before the age of five and there is a significant body of evidence that shows reading for pleasure has a huge impact on educational success and personal development.
 
That’s why it’s vital that children are introduced to books and reading at a young age – certainly pre-school, when they are curious, hungry for information and need regular stimulation to develop communications skills. Reading with babies and toddlers can shape how well or otherwise children perform academically.
 
Our public library network plays a unique and distinct role in this area. Libraries are a fantastic place to reach children at a young age and foster a love of books. Crucially, libraries offer free and easy access to books for everyone, regardless of age, social demographic and level of education, ensuring equality of opportunity – a fundamental ethos of public libraries.’
