One of Ottery St Mary library's young readers kept herself busy during lockdown by enjoying 100 books.

And now, as restrictions imposed because of the pandemic are slowly being relaxed, she has been able to claim her BookTrack reward.

Tiana Sheward, aged seven, completed her 100 book reading challenge during lockdown and has been able to return to the library this week to collect her badge and certificate.

Tiana revealed the highlights of her BookTrack journey. She said: "I really liked the Dr Seuss books and There's a Snake in my School by David Walliams."

Tiana also gained a school award for reading 250,000 words! The staff at Ottery library have all enjoyed hearing about the books that Tiana has read - both in person at the beginning of her BookTrack journey and then via e-mail during the pandemic.
