Summer Reading Challenge 2017

Read six books by Saturday 16th September to get a special certificate, a medal and clues to solve a mystery! Children completing the challenge have their name added to a special draw to be in with a chance at winning one of these fantastic prizes:

  • An iPad
  • Theatre tickets
  • Tickets for the owl experience at Deen City Farm
  • A family ticket to the Warner Bros Studio Tour London, the Making of Harry Potter.
  • And much more!


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.

Many thanks to our main sponsors Kisiel Group and Merton Islamic Community Centre.
