Welcome from Councillor Anyanwu

Welcome to Lambeth Libraries’ annual Children and Young People’s Readers and Writers Festival 2023.

We have a bumper programme of events and activities beginning in June, when we celebrate the rich diversity of Lambeth by including Refugee Week, Windrush Day, Pride Month and Empathy Day. Our theme is ‘Kindness for All’ with a special emphasis on the celebration of children and authors with disabilities and their representation in stories.

We continue with the sports themed Summer Reading Challenge 2023, Ready, Set, Read! delivered in partnership with the national children’s charity Youth Sports Trust and public libraries.

We have an exciting and diverse range of events and activities to suit all tastes including, author talks, storytelling, sports workshops, quizzes and much more to celebrate children and young people.
