The Library is OPEN AS NORMAL

Summer Reading Challenge

The Summer Reading Challenge 2020 is coming soon!

This year’s Challenge is called Silly Squad and it's all about funny books, happiness, and having a laugh! The Silly Squad is a team of animal friends who love to go on adventures and get stuck into all different kinds of funny books.

The Challenge runs from Saturday 18 July until September, so there’s plenty of time to get involved and get silly this summer. And don't forget, IT’S FREE!

How to take part:

STEP 1: Sign up to the challenge on this webpage from Monday 6 July. 

STEP 2: Collect your pack from the Library. Please be aware that due to the disruption caused by COVID-19, the packs may not be ready to collect from the start date (but you can still start reading). Keep an eye on this webpage or our social media for updates.

STEP 3: Read SIX books over the holidays – these can be library books or any books you have at home.

STEP 4: Get your stickers and collect your rewards from the Library as you go.

STEP 5: Complete the Challenge and receive your medal!
