The Aur Pur/Pure Gold promotion has been running for the last three years in North Wales public libraries but, this year FE and HE colleges are involved, including Coleg Llandrillo library.
The aim of the promotion is to show the wide range of stimulating books available free of charge for readers in libraries in Wales, and has been funded from the Welsh Assembly Government’s National Marketing Strategy for Libraries.
Librarians from Estyn Allan y Gogledd, the reader development network, have chosen twelve books, all from Wales but which take the reader to many different places.

Congratulations to three Coleg Llandrillo Denbigh students for winning the reader development competition. Niame Traore is an ESOL student and used our Oxford Bookworms collection to practice her english reading skills. Mathew Thomas McDonald and Helen Williams are both on the STEPS program and have been reading as part of their classroom activities. Niame and Mathew both won an MP3 video player and Helen has won £20 worth of book tokens!
Niame Traore receiving her challenge prize!
All three students took part in the Six Book Challenge 2010. The challenge was to read and review six books. Students could choose any six books they liked (at any level) to enter the challenge and needed to send in all six reviews to the library. Coleg Llandrillo Rhos winners to be announced shortly!
Over half of adults (56%) have literacy skills below the level of a good GCSE (NAO, Skills for Life: Progress in Improving Adult Literacy and Numeracy, 2008). “Our stubborn national skills problems show we need new ways to tackle literacy issues,” said Miranda McKearney, Director of The Reading Agency. “We launched the Six Book Challenge in 2008, and I wish we’d started it years ago! It’s a deceptively simple, motivational scheme that has a tremendous impact on people’s lives.’
9,000 adults took part in the Six Book Challenge in 2009, up 25% on 2008. 70% of library services across the UK ran the scheme as well as colleges, adult and community education centres, workplaces and prisons. 90% of participants said they feel more confident about reading after taking part, and tutors say that the Challenge improves learners’ confidence, increases their motivation and helps them develop a reading habit.
Author Mike Gayle, who is Patron of the Six Book Challenge and a keen supporter of adult literacy initiatives, said: “Anything that encourages adult learners to get stuck into a good read has got to be a good thing in my book! I’m proud to be involved in this terrific initiative that is making a real difference to those who have felt excluded from the world of books.”
