Owen just loves books

A YOUNG bookworm has become the first to win a gold certificate from Emersons Green Library.
Owen Meachin, who is five, has been visiting the library regularly with his mum Victoria since he was tiny and for the past two years he has been working towards the Bookstart Bear award.
Participants receive a certificate for every six stamps they collect and the gold is certificate number 10.
Victoria said Owen, a pupil at King’s Forest Primary School, loves books and enjoys going to the library and talking to the staff.
“He is very proud to have achieved the gold certificate,” she said.
“The Bookstart stamps are a good incentive to keep going with reading. I am keen to encourage Owen and his sister Isabel to enjoy books.”
