Summer Reading Challenge

Take part in the six book Gadgeteers reading challenge over the summer and inspire creative and innovative thinking.

This year's Summer Reading Challenge will open 16 July. Sign up at your local library.

Gadgeteers get ready - the Summer Reading Challenge opens soon!

The Summer Reading Challenge is open to all children aged 4-11. The challenge is to read six books over the school holidays.

This year's theme is Gadgeteers and will focus on scientific innovation and creative thinking. Our friendly staff and volunteers will help children find books and get them started on their reading adventure.

For each of the six books they read, they can collect a prize from the library. If they complete the challenge, they'll also receive a special certificate!

Children can sign up in any of our libraries from 16 July.
