Libraries will celebrate National Bookstart Week by giving away free copies of a popular children's book.

Barnet residents will be able to receive a special version of Harper Collins' Super Duck, by Jez Alborough.

This story follows the heroic Super Duck as he strives to rescue his friend Frog from an unplanned flight on a wayward kite.

The week takes place every year to celebrate Bookstart, the flagship reading programme from national charity, Booktrust.

This year’s week runs from June 9 to 15. For more information visit
