Space Chase Summer Reading Challenge 2019

The Summer Reading Challenge for 4 to 11 year olds takes place in all libraries during the summer holidays.

We’re delighted to announce that the theme for this year’s Summer Reading Challenge will be Space Chase!

Space Chase starts Saturday 13th July and ends Saturday 14th September

To sign up click the button below and follow the instructions, then visit the library to get the Reader Record. Your child then needs to choose any six library books to read (printed books, audiobooks or eBooks) and collect prizes along the way – all for free.
