The Summer Reading Challenge

The Summer Reading Challenge

FREE to all children this summer at their local library starting Saturday July 14th.

The Summer Reading Challenge is the UK’s biggest annual reading promotion for children aged 4 to 11.

The Summer Reading Challenge combines FREE access to books with fun, creative activities in the library during the summer holidays. Throughout the Challenge, library staff and young volunteers support the children, helping them to discover new authors and illustrators and to explore a wide range of different types of books and ways of reading,

How the Challenge works

  • Children sign up at their local library and receive an Animal Agents collector folder
  • Children borrow and read at least six library books of their own choice during the summer, collecting special stickers to complete their folder and incentives along the way
  • Library staff and young volunteers are on hand to advise and run family-friendly activities
  • Children who complete the Summer Reading Challenge are presented with a certificate and a medal
