Media opportunity - Kick off the Rugby League World Cup 2013 with Leeds libraries

Media are invited to Leeds City Council's launch of The Reading Agency’s Six Book Challenge at Leeds Central Library on Saturday, 9 February at 1pm.

Leeds Rhinos and England international rugby league player Jamie Jones-Buchanan will launch the national initiative. He will be available for photographs and interviews, and will talk about his career, this year's Rugby League World Cup and the importance of reading to him and his family between 1 and 2pm.

Leeds is proud to be a host city for RLWC2013, with two high profile games being played in the city this November.

The Reading Agency has joined forces with the RLWC2013 to promote and run its Six Book Challenge for less confident readers in locations used by rugby league fans.

Please confirm your attendance by calling Claire Macklam on 0113 395 1578, or by email to claire.macklam@leeds.gov.uk
