Summer reading challenge 2018

SRC 2018 Web Image-c07ee1ab44864b52ad25c350e3e512aaThis year’s challenge starts on Thursday 28th June and runs until Saturday 25th August 2018.

Youngsters often read less during the summer holidays. Our Summer Reading Challenge is a fun and accessible activity for children of all ages and aims to promote reading, encourage progression, support curricular outcomes and involve children in a cultural activity.

Children receive a stamp or sticker for each book they read and will receive a book prize after reading six or more books, depending on their age group.

As well as the reading challenge, our libraries also run a creative competition.

Get down to your local library and find out more when the challenge commences at the end of June.
