Reading Passport

This summer the world comes to London and the South West for the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games and libraries across the South West invite you to explore the world through your reading. Take a voyage of discovery, experience new cultures and be inspired as you cross the world's borders, exploring new lands beyond your normal reading territory.

Read six books, one each from five continents plus one other of your choice. Let our book lists act as guides to the world of reading possibilities.

Use your Reading Passport (available in your local library) to record and review the books you've read. Write your thoughts and reflections on a page of the passport, tear it out and hand it in at your library.

The pages may be displayed in the library and each review handed in before 30th September 2012 will be entered into our regional prize draw to win a 'suitcase of books'. Here are thecompetition terms and conditions|.

This project is the result of a collaborative approach between all of the regional library authorities, Cyprus Well| (the regional literature development agency), and the South West Regional Library Service| (SWRLS)

Please feel free to engage with the  readsouthwest blog| and upload  your reviews or read about what libraries are doing all over the South West as part of this project|

Here in Bournemouth we have some additional reading lists aimed at young people over the age of 12 as well as reading lists aimed at adults but feel free to mix and match!
