The Summer Reading Challenge encourages children aged 4 to 12 to read six library books during the long summer holiday.
Children’s reading can ‘dip’ during the summer holidays if they don’t have regular access to books and encouragement to read for pleasure. The annual Summer Reading Challenge helps get three quarters of a million children into libraries each year to keep up their reading skills and confidence. The Challenge celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.
How it works
Children receive special rewards each time they finish a book and there’s a certificate for everyone who completes the Challenge.
The Summer Reading Challenge is open to all primary school aged children and is designed for all reading abilities. Children can sign up for free at a Rhoose Community Library during the summer holidays. All the child requires is a library card!
Rhoose Community Library also runs the Mini Challenge, a linked early years activity for pre-schoolers.
