PEOPLE who go into Ludlow Library will get the opportunity to travel the world.

The team at Shropshire Council’s libraries service has joined with BBC Arts and The Reading Agency to offer an adult reading challenge with a difference this summer.

Readers can enjoy The Big Jubilee Read experience by borrowing or downloading books for free from a list of 70 intriguing titles written by celebrated Commonwealth writers over the past seven decades.

And a programme of special book club events will follow in early autumn, allowing readers to swap views on their book list selections.

All of Shropshire’s libraries are taking part, offering readers their own copy of the book list and opportunities to read many of the absorbing titles stocked in local branches.
