Tour de Leeds Libraries : Monday 23rd June – Friday 4th July
Popular local children’s author Tom Palmer www.tompalmer.co.uk will snap on his bicycle clips and cycle his way around all the libraries in Leeds as part of a special Tour de France author tour – on wheels!
Tom will be greeted at each library by groups of children from local schools, who will hear him talk about his love of books, the joy of reading and how libraries changed his life. Tom will also be reading a special short story he has written to celebrate this momentous occasion in Leeds – involving a young girl, her bike, a visit to the library and a wonderful adventure.
There will also be an opportunity to pick up useful resources and information from Europe Direct. Tom has also produced a brilliant resource pack for schools, which is also available to download and is funded by Europe Direct. http://www.leeds.gov.uk/leisure/Pages/Schools-library-service.aspx
