Reading for fun

A love for reading can be hugely valuable for children. The benefits of leisure reading include increased general knowledge, a positive impact on academic achievement, enhanced reading ability and vocabulary growth. Research suggests that time spent reading for pleasure could be a key indicator for the future success of a child. Reading aloud too fosters a love of books in children, and helps children associate reading with pleasure. If you would like to support your children's reading with fun and accessible books to read why not give your local library a call and have a chat with the staff to find the right books for your children? Contact details can be found on www.wrexham.gov.uk/libraries

Welsh Story Time at our libraries

Have fun sharing rhymes and stories with your baby or toddler! Sharing books and coming to story-rhyme times are fun and a great way to help under fives develop their listening, thinking and talking skills. Weekly Welsh story time sessions take place at Wrexham Library every Thursday 2pm-2.30pm, and in Rhos and Cefn Mawr libraries every Wednesday during term time with Ti a Fi: Rhos 10.30am-11.30am and Cefn Mawr 1.30pm-2.30pm.

Scrabble Club at Ruabon Library

There's nothing better than playing a game of Scrabble, feeling the smooth wooden tiles in your hand as you rearrange the letters on your rack into the perfect word. You try to keep a straight face while you watch your opponent sweat but you can't help but release that diabolical grin of self-admiration as you play the elusive triple-triple. Although the score is recorded and you're there to win, more importantly you're there to meet new people and have fun! You can do all of this and more at Ruabon Library on the first Wednesday of the month at 2pm, free of charge.

Welsh Book Review

Wynne Evans gan Elin Meek

Wynne Evans by Elin Meek

Wynne Evans by Elin Meek

Llyfr o gyfres Amdani, i ddysgwyr Lefel Mynediad. Bywgraffiad Wynne Evans. Darlun personol a gonest iawn o hanes Wynne a'i deulu, ei brofiadau fel tenor enwog, a'i ymdrech fel oedolyn i ddysgu Cymraeg. Roeddwn i'n hoff iawn o'r arddull cwestiwn ac ateb oedd yn cael ei ddefnyddio yn y llyfr. Mae'n rhoi pytiau byrrach o wybodaeth er mwyn ei gwneud hi'n haws i ddysgwyr ar lefelau dechreuwyr ddarllen ychydig bach ar y tro os ydyn nhw'n dymuno gwneud hynny. Mae'r wybodaeth wedi'i gosod allan yn glir gyda geirfa ar waelod pob tudalen, ac mae pob gair sy'n ymddangos yn yr eirfa wedi cael ei osod mewn ffont trwm yn y darn, sy'n ddefnyddiol iawn. Yn ogystal, mae'r eirfa i gyd wedi ei chasglu at ei gilydd a'i chynnwys ar ddiwedd y llyfr hefyd. Huw
