Rugby League World Cup honours the Six Book Challenge

Posted 4 Dec 2013 by Brenda in Events, Libraries, Six Book Challenge

Development librarian Janet Puzylo who works for Livewire Warrington, received a Bronze award for the number of people who have comeeted the shceme.A special presentation ceremony during half time at the Rugby League World Cup final at Old Trafford served as a final celebration for the year-long partnership between The Reading Agency and RLWC2013 to deliver the Six Book Challenge and encourage less confident readers in areas typically populated by Rugby League fans.

The Six Book Challenge invites adult literacy learners and less confident readers to read six books and record their progress in a diary in order to receive a certificate. It is being increasingly recognised as a key intervention using reading for pleasure to help tackle this country's continuing skills deficit. Key partners in bringing the Six Book Challenge to Rugby League fans, using specially branded materials, have been public library services, workplaces and trade unions.

England international and Leeds Rhinos star Jamie Jones-Buchanan, who is a Six Book Challenge ambassador said: "It's been an honour to be associated with this project. I know first-hand that it has had an extremely positive effect on the literacy and lives of hundreds of adults and young people, and I'm pleased to have played just a small part in the process."
