Summer Activities + Summer Reading Challenge!

Mischief Makers: Summer Reading Challenge 2018

The reading agency and libraries present Mischief Makers, this year’s Summer Reading Challenge.

The challenge over the summer, is to read 6 books. To encourage this, your library offer incentives such as a collecting card, bookmark, wrist band and stickers.

Everyone who takes part and reads at least one book will receive a certificate, and if you manage to read all six books you’ll receive a medal as well.

For pre-school children, we also offer the Summer Mini-Challenge. Collect a sticker for coming to the library and taking books out. When you have six stickers, you’ll also receive a certificate.

The reading challenge starts on Saturday 14th July and runs until 15th September.
