Local Libraries still supporting the Community in Lockdown
They may be closed physically but our local libraries still have plenty of resources available to you online.
You can borrow eBooks, eAudio, eComics and eMagazines. New titles are being added daily, so keep checking the website.
To be able to access these amazing facilities, all you need is to make sure you have an NYCC library card and PIN – if you haven’t then get in contact at firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 01609 533878.
They have also renewed everyone’s loans until the end of June so don’t worry if you have a few at home that you didn’t get a chance to return before lockdown.
Our local libraries have also got lots of great ideas on how to keep the kids entertained:
New Library Quiz – You need to like and follow your local library’s Facebook page in order to take part. They will then ask all sorts of questions each day from 10am with the answers posted at 6pm.
The quiz will run weekly from Wednesday -Sunday, so you have plenty of time to take part.
Saturday scavenger hunts – See what you have got in your book collection at home and post photographs of the books you find.
The Book Trust – Family fun activities including storytime, videos, quizzes, games and drawing with illustrators.
Harrogate Community Radio – They are hosting an amazing storytime at 4pm each day. All the storytimes are available to listen to again at any time.
Comics & Graphic novels – Writer and illustrator David O’Connell has a huge collection of free comic and drawing activities for children on his website.
Barrington Stoke – They have some fabulous free resources that are dyslexia friendly along with reading suggestions to encourage readers to pick up a book. They also have colouring sheets, wordsearches and puzzles.
Harry Potter Fans – J.K. Rowling and her Wizarding World partners have launched a wonderful Harry Potter at Home site to banish boredom. Really great fun to explore.
