Reading help for adults in Norfolk Libraries

Do you, or someone you know have difficulty reading?

One in six adults struggles with reading. Research shows that when people read for pleasure they benefit from far greater opportunities in everyday life, education and employment.

The Norfolk Reading Pathway is a FREE programme which is available across all Norfolk Libraries and is open to any adult who would like support to become a more confident reader.

Community Librarian Alison Thorne said: “We match learners with one of our volunteer coaches and they work through the ‘Yes we can Read' handbook together.

“Coaching sessions are usually weekly for up to an hour, at a time to suit everyone; our coaches are friendly, positive, and encouraging.”
