Make the most of your local library –
Harold Wood Library

Going to the local library is an incredibly beneficial experience for children in lots of ways. Firstly, it fosters a love for reading. By surrounding themselves with books, children get a chance to explore different genres and discover new interests. This exposure to a variety of literature allows them to develop a strong reading habit which can enhance their literacy skills and expand their knowledge.

Harold Wood Library provides an environment that encourages learning and exploration. Libraries often organise activities, shows, and other engaging events that capture children’s imagination and ignite their curiosity. These activities not only make learning fun but also improve their listening and communication skills, instilling a love for storytelling and creativity.

Harold Wood Library offers a friendly, safe and quiet space for children to study and complete their homework. It provides access to resources like computers, reference books, and study guides, which can assist them in their education.

In addition, visiting the library introduces children to the concept of borrowing books. Teaching them the importance of returning books on time installs a sense of responsibility and accountability.

Overall, going to the library opens up a world of possibilities for children. It nurtures their love for reading, expands their knowledge, enhances their learning experience, and teaches them valuable life skills.

Luckily for residents of Havering – Harold Wood Library has a wide range of events which would be perfect for all the family.  Remember to not forget visiting the local library can be a great activity and lots of fun.
