Silly Squad, Summer Reading Challenge 2020

Closes on 30th September 2020

This year's annual Summer Reading Challenge is going digital!

Because of Covid-19 and the impact of social distancing on schools and libraries, The Reading Agency have developed a fun online Summer Reading Challenge to engage and inspire young readers to keep reading throughout the summer.

Our libraries are now open, so you can come in and borrow books - but to join the Challenge you need to go online. You can join now or at any time through the summer.

Watch our sign up video to find out all about this year’s challenge. See below for written instructions.

The theme is 'Silly Squad': a celebration of funny books, happiness and laughter, featuring artwork from award-winning children's author and illustrator, Laura Ellen Anderson. There will be lots of fun activities to take part in, as well as registering the books you have read.

Follow The Silly Squad on Facebook.

Join the Silly Squad, Summer Reading Challenge 2020 and borrow eBooks to complete the challenge using the Libby App.

Find a special collection of books on OverDrive.

Information about the Summer Reading Challenge website for parents and carers.

Don't forget you can also join Bexley Libraries online if you don't already have a library card.
