Booktastic Sandwell Library Membership for Children

Booktastic! The universal library membership scheme for children was introduced in 2014 and was the brainchild of Councillor Simon Hackett, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services.

The scheme provides a first step towards getting children to read for pleasure, which increases literacy levels, improves educational attainment and life chances by providing free library membership to all reception age children in Sandwell.

Booktastic! aims to celebrate the magic of reading with children and encourage parents to take their children to libraries, and share books as part of a regular reading habit. The library card can be used at any of the libraries across Sandwell to borrow up to 30 items.

Please find below a flyer detailing the impact of the GDPR on the scheme.
