Summer Reading Challenge 2017

Volunteer with us this summer

Organised by The Reading Agency and the public library network, the annual Summer Reading Challenge, aimed at 4- 11 year olds is simple and fun. Children are encouraged to read six or more library books of their choice during the summer holidays with collectable incentives and rewards, a chance to enter our prize draw, plus a certificate and medal for every child who completes the challenge. Children can sign up at their local library at the start of the summer holidays– it's absolutely free.

Every year there is a new theme and this year the Summer Reading Challenge is Animal Agents.

Get involved
