Gift-wrapped books to encourage wider reading this Christmas
Friends of Sidmouth Library are gifting books as Christmas presents in a bid to encourage wider reading in the community.
A number of titles that have been donated to the facility have been wrapped up and left in the foyer for people to take and open on December 25.
Library supervisor Carol Pentecost said: “The idea came from the friends, with the premise that people can take the book home or gift it on, or if they want to they could bring it back to the library for everyone to enjoy.
“It’s a good way of recycling books that we have been donated in the hope of making people widen their horizons. You might discover a new author or a new genre and you have not lost anything, because it’s just a nice gesture on behalf of friends.”
