SPL Reading Stars

26th March 2010 at 00:00

Scottish Premier League footballers have signed up to the SPL Reading Stars club for a second year. Players will attend learning sessions at libraries near their clubs and choose their favourite adult and children's book for their libraries to receive. A total of 21 libraries will carry out targeted literacy work with children and adults from their local community, and schools throughout Scotland will have the chance to become involved. Last year, 2,800 schools benefited from the programme, receiving SPL Reading Starts campaign packs. The Scottish Government has provided pound;70,000 in funding for this year's initiative, run by the National Literacy Trust.
