Montford Library held its successful and exciting Bookworm Club awards ceremony, recently. Members of the club engaged in poems, short extracts, song and speeches to entertain and show their parents how the club and reading helped them get over their shyness.
Each child received a medal and book, proudly sponsored by Mrs Rajbansi, leader of the Minority Front.
They also received certificates of participation and goodie bags from the Library Department. Divesh from Food for Life also sponsored them with a healthy snack pack.
Jade Gounden and MF councillor, Jonathan Annipen, were the guests of honour at the function. They addressed the club members and stressed the importance of reading for a brighter future.
Parents were treated to refreshments after the function which was generously sponsored by Pastor Selvan Govender, Dr Paruk and Tino.
The book club not only focuses on reviews of books, but encourages children to read certain recommended authors on how to write book reviews and introduce them to the new collection of books.
Membership is free and interested children can contact Montford Library on 031-322-3018.
