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. The Challenge celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.

We are 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

Your child needs to read six books of their choice (printed books or ebooks) and collect prizes along the way – all for free. If they complete the Challenge, they’ll get a medal and certificate.

Each child needs a library card and PIN to join the Challenge and to reserve and download books online.

Click on the button below to sign your child up to the Challenge from 13th July.
