Summer Reading Challenge for 2019

Space Chase, Summer reading Challenge 2019.

Get ready for an out-of–this-world adventure at the library this summer – it’s Space Chase, the Summer Reading Challenge 2019.

Our super space family, the Rockets, need your help to track down books that have been nabbed by aliens!

As you read six library books over the summer, collect special stickers (including some stinky ones!) to complete your mission folder and get your medal and certificate. It’s fun and free to take part!

Please encourage your children to visit the library and sign up and see the difference the Summer Reading Challenge makes to their reading.

“My son really enjoyed the challenge and it kept him motivated to keep reading over the school holidays which will really help when he goes back to school.” (parent, Cadbury Heath)

“It was fun, cool, amazing and I loved it.” (child, Bradley Stoke)

This year’s Reading Challenge runs from Saturday 13th July to Saturday 14th September.
