Stories And Snacks At Conwy Libraries

Stories And Snacks At Conwy Libraries


Saturday 24th Feb 2024


Conwy library service is delighted to be offering free snacks and drinks to young readers this summer thanks to sponsorship support.

Harlech Foods Ltd is providing a snack and drink for up to 600 children across Conwy County’s ten libraries over the summer holidays.

The Snack and Story initiative started last year as part of the annual Summer Reading Challenge.  It gives school-aged children the opportunity to spend time in a library with others their own age, and enjoy a story and snack.

Sharon Morgan, Principal Librarian and information Manager said: “We’re really pleased to be able to run the Snack and Story initiative again this year, it wouldn’t be possible without support from Harlech and the local companies they work with. We hope that children coming into the library will be excited to sign up to the Summer Reading Challenge, the theme for this year is ‘Ready, Set, Read!’”

Harlech Foods Ltd provide catering supplies for all of Conwy County Borough Council schools.  They’ve sourced supplies for Story and Snack from local Welsh suppliers The Pudding Compartment, and Radnor Hills.

Stephen Griffiths from Harlech Foods said: “‘At Harlech foods we have a strong ethos of supporting the community wherever possible. We are delighted to be supporting Snack and Story. This project is a great opportunity for us to give something back and to benefit those children visiting the libraries across Conwy this summer.”

Cllr Aaron Wynne, Conwy’s Cabinet Member for Leisure and Culture said: “We’re really grateful to Harlech Foods and their suppliers for helping make the Snack and Story initiative happen in Conwy libraries again this summer.  Our libraries are amazing facilities for children and families during the summer holidays, and all year round, and provide much appreciated resources, activities, information and advice for everyone who visits.”
