See them around Stoke-on-Trent in locations such as the Emma Bridgewater factory, Potteries Museum & Art Gallery and the Moorcroft Heritage Visitor Centre until 30 June. Find lots of fun activities taking place around the benches too, including crafts, storytelling and pottery.
The BookBenches have all been painted by local schools and groups. Designs include:
National Literacy Trust
The initiative is part of National Literacy Trust’s Stoke Reads campaign that aims to spark a love of reading. Pick up your trail and activities map from participating venues, Stoke-on-Trent libraries or download to print at home. Just remember to check the opening times of venues before making a special visit.
At the end of the display, the benches are returned to the schools and community groups. The BookBenches will become a lasting feature of a library, book corner or outside learning environment.
