Do you have what it takes to complete the Summer Reading Challenge? Your mission is to finish reading six books during the summer holidays. You can read whatever you like for the challenge just as long as they are borrowed from the library and you’ll receive special awards for each book you read. The Summer Reading Challenge is open to children aged four to 11.
Taking part in the challenge helps children improve their reading skills, knowledge and confidence during the holidays. Join the challenge at your local library! We also have some out of this world activities taking place this summer.
