Sheffield Year of Reading

1 Jan - 31 Dec 2020

Sheffield’s Year of Reading launches across the city on 15th January 2020 and will be a 12-month, citywide celebration of creativity and the written word.

Here at Fox Valley, our very own Zorro Lounge have a book swap or borrow all year round. Find their bookshelf in the lounge, grab a coffee and peruse the selection of books at your leisure. They also have kids corner where you can find a selection on Childrens books and activities for the little ones. Keep an eye out for the arrival of some new books very soon, kindly donated by our friends at JoJo Maman Bébé.

Reading is the key that unlocks the door – it helps us feel better, discover more, and unleashes our individual creativity.

The Year of Reading will inspire us all about what reading can do for every one of us and the huge benefits that it brings to our everyday lives; how a story can take you to a faraway place in your head, imaginary or otherwise, or how reading a technical manual can help you build something amazing that you’ve never built before. How reading an autobiography can help inspire you to change your plans or fill you with admiration, or how a Sci-Fi read can help you escape you into mysterious and fantastic worlds.

Keep an eye out for other reading activities taking place on the centre throughout the year!
