Summer Reading Challenge
How do I sign my child up?
Just visit your local library at the beginning of the school summer holidays where staff will be waiting to enrol your child. It’s all completely free of charge.
What books can my child read?
This challenge is designed for children of all ages and abilities. They can read any books they like – fact books, stories, joke books, audio books, picture books – it’s up to them. As long as they borrow from the library they all count.
Do the children who finish the challenge receive anything?
Yes, every child will receive a certificate and medal and special rewards along the way.
How do children benefit from taking part in the annual Summer Reading Challenge?
- Reading for pleasure improves children’s life chances.
- Children who use libraries are twice as likely to be above average readers.
Not a member of the library?
Don’t worry, all you need to do is call into your local library with one form of ID and we will sign you up or join online.
