Join the Summer Reading Challenge

Do you have any primary school children in your family? Tell them about our libraries' Summer Reading Challenge.

The long school summer holidays could mean that your child's reading level 'dips' over the six weeks. The Summer Reading Challenge is designed to stop that.

It also introduces children to all the brilliant things our libraries can offer them – events, activities, computers and, of course, loads of books to borrow for free.

This year’s challenge has a science theme to inspire your child's imagination.

Children can buddy up with the Gadgeteer characters and read or listen to any six library books over the summer holidays and be rewarded every step of the way with stickers, and they'll get a medal and certificate if they complete the challenge too.
