About the Seminar
The More that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go. As Librarians, we couldn’t agree more with Dr. Seuss. Every day we are looking for new ways to inspire young people to read more, to put down that mobile phone or turn off the play-station and pick up a book and read for pleasure. It is an on-going challenge we now find ourselves in, competing with technology and the busyness of life in general. The decline of young people’s reading skills and general interest in reading is a worrying concern globally.
