Stalbridge Community Library invite all young children to join in the Summer Reading Challenge 2017...
What is the Summer Reading Challenge?
Every year, thousands of families all over the country take part in the UK’s biggest reading event for children in libraries, the Summer Reading Challenge, run by the charity The Reading Agency.
The aim of the challenge is to get children to read any six books of their choice from their library during the summer holidays.
Every year there’s a different theme; this year it’s Animal Agents, illustrated by the UK’s best-selling children’s illustrator Tony Ross.
Enrolling your child
The Summer Reading Challenge is aimed at children aged four to eleven. It is run in almost all libraries in the UK and it is completely free.
Go to your local library during the summer holidays – the sooner you go the longer your child will have to read six books. Staff will enrol your child and give them some fun materials to get them started on the Challenge.
Most libraries in England and Wales will start the Challenge on Saturday 15 July 2017.
Regional variations will apply, and your local library will be able to confirm when the Challenge will begin in your area.
There is not an official end date for the Challenge. Each library authority will set their own finish date. Please check with your local library to find out when the Challenge will finish in your area.
The Summer Reading Challenge website
The Summer Reading Challenge website allows your child to log the books they have read during the summer – and beyond. They can also find new books to read, recommended by other children, watch exclusive author videos, take part in competitions and play games.
Please note: as the Summer Reading Challenge is a library-based scheme, children must enrol in the Challenge at a UK library to be eligible for any rewards.
