Activities at Frankley Library
This is to inform you of some things we have going on at Frankley Library and hope you can advertise to your students and parents.
Starting in the New Year, we are looking to run a reading group for children from 3:45 every other Wednesday.
Frankley Library Children’s Reading Group is open to any primary school children who are interested in reading and talking about what they’ve read.
There will be a member of staff to guide the conversation and make sure everyone gets a chance to speak if they want.
The first session will be on the 11th January and will be every other week.
There is no requirements to attend every session.

Substance Abuse Guide and Help for Parents
Parents will do almost anything to keep their children safe, but communicating with youth becomes more challenging as they get older. That’s why you should talk to your children about alcohol and other drugs early. It’s a conversation that you need to have because drugs can ruin your child’s life.
Every year, millions of teens try alcohol, marijuana or tobacco products for the first time. Most of them won’t get caught. They won’t get in a car accident, and they won’t become addicted. But a significant portion of them will, and the consequences can be devastating.
You can keep your children from becoming a statistic by being involved in their lives, having honest conversations with them and practicing what you preach.
Some parents, despite their best efforts, will have a child who develops a substance use disorder. That doesn’t mean the parent or child has failed. Helping a child recover from addiction is just one of the many challenges parents might face.
