Summer Reading Challenge for 2017

Animal Agents - Summer Reading Challenge 2017.

This summer there’s something strange happening at your local library – and that’s where the Animal Agents come in!

The Animal Agents love solving mysteries and they need YOU to help them crack their biggest case yet. Who has painted graffiti on the library wall? Why are things suddenly going missing? Join the Animal Agents for the Summer Reading Challenge 2017 and help them uncover the truth!

Taking part is simple – sign up at your local library from Saturday 15th July. Read six library books (or more!) by 16th September to collect special stickers and complete the Challenge. Each time you visit the library, you’ll discover new clues and evidence that will help you solve this cryptic case.

Use your eagle-eyes and test your skills and ingenuity by reading books to collect stinky stickers for your case file. Super sleuths who read all six books to complete the challenge and solve the case get a medal, certificate and a complimentary child’s ticket for Wild Place Project* or free library DVD hire.

South Gloucestershire libraries are also staging FREE Animal Agents activity sessions throughout the school holidays. Activities are drop-in activities most suitable for primary school children unless otherwise stated.

*Complimentary child’s ticket for Wild Place Project available while stocks last. Tickets expire 30th May 2018.
