• Duchess of Cornwall visits library for National Bookstart Week

    Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cornwall visited Broughshane library in County Antrim, Northern Ireland, to celebrate National Bookstart Week.

    Each year Libraries NI organises an event to celebrate and promote National Bookstart Week in Northern Ireland. The story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears was chosen as a focus for the event, to encourage healthy eating alongside the sharing of books and stories with children from an early age.

     

     

    'Reading is the best fun in the world'

    Her Royal Highness was invited by Jenny Bristow, Ireland’s Good Food Ambassador, to join children from Broughshane primary school in making healthy muffins. Her Royal Highness then read the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears to the children, and then told the children that ‘reading is the best fun in the world'. The Duchess gave each child a goodie bag containing National Bookstart Week activities and The Ugly Duckling storybook.
