Have you found one of our Books?

Taking inspiration from the Look for a Book North East group on Facebook, staff from our Families and Parenting Service have been out and about hiding books! 

On Wednesday 18 September, our Families and Parenting Service took it upon themselves to pack and hide around 40 books throughout the Newburn Riverside area of Newcastle.

The packs included a children’s book alongside an adult's book, as well as information about why we’ve hidden the books. 

As an organisation, we’ve long promoted the value of books in aiding the development and education of babies, children and young people - from helping parents bond with their babies to encouraging children to talk and build their creativity. So this was a joy for us to do. 

Take a look at the pictures below (and on our Facebook page) and see if you can find one of our hidden books!  We’d love to hear if you do – make sure you tag us on social media (we're on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram).
