Reading Ahead is the new name for the Six Book Challenge. Derbyshire County Council's library service has run the Six Book Challenge for a number of years to encourage reading for pleasure with different groups of reluctant readers, including running it alongside the Summer Reading Challenge and through Surestart for parents and carers; via its Home Library Service; with HMP prison libraries and with students attending Derbyshire Adult Community Education Service DACES classes, which run all over the county. Leading literacy classes at three community settings - Shirebrook, Bolsover and South Normanton - she often supports vulnerable adults striving to overcome multiple challenges in life, not just low literacy. For example, they work with reader development librarians to 'show and tell' all the different types of reading that can count towards completing the Challenge, getting learners talking about them and encouraging them to borrow books. She finds the majority of learners subsequently feel more confident about using a library, with resulting positive impact on group dynamics, engagement with reading and involvement with learning. We are now looking forward to promoting Reading Ahead in our communities," says Annabel Wilson, reader development and stock management librarian for Derbyshire County Council. This is what adult education is all about.
