Read to Succeed!

  • Would your child benefit from some extra help with their reading?
  • Could you spare an hour a week to help a child improve their literacy skills?

The Read to Succeed scheme, run by Artizan Street and Barbican Children's Library, offers children aged five to 14 years the opportunity to improve their literacy skills and develop a love of reading for life by pairing a child with a volunteer reading partner.

If you can spare an hour a week to help a child develop their reading skills by giving one to one support and encouragement with the aid of full training, or you would like your child to improve their reading, contact the Barbican Children's Library.
