The Reading Agency and libraries are excited to introduce Ready, Set Read! Summer Reading Challenge 2023!

We have teamed up with The Reading Agency and the Youth Sport Trust, to challenge primary school children to read six library books over the summer holidays. As they read, children collect stickers and prizes, and after reading six books they earn a certificate and medal.

Children can read any library book they want, including: eBooks; audiobooks; comic books and even eMagazines. A shared story with a friend or family member also counts towards the challenge. The challenge starts on 8 July, our website has more information, including joining the challenge, book suggestions and forthcoming summer events.

The Summer Reading Challenge is open to all children, free of charge

If you prefer, you can join at your local library - find your nearest library.
