What is the Challenge?

We challenge you to borrow and read 6 library books over the Summer holidays. Any children aged 4-11 can take part, you just need to be a member of the library.

All library materials count except DVDs. You read books, listen to books, use our apps to access digital books and audiobooks.  You can read about any topic, it doesn’t just have to be about space.

How the Challenge Works

Join the SRC and receive your Sticker pack and Bookmark

Read books 1 & 2 and get sticker set 1

Read books 3 & 4 and get sticker set 2

Read books 5 & 6 and get sticker set 3…and your medal and certificate!

You can only complete the challenge once, so if you read more than 6 books you are a superstar reader, but we can only give you one medal and one certificate.

This is a really exciting challenge and we hope to see you all taking part!
