If you are looking for something to keep your children busy during the long summer holidays then hurry down to your nearest Surrey library and sign them up to this year’s Summer Reading Challenge.
The theme is Space Chase and is an out-of-this-world adventure inspired by the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. The Summer Reading Challenge is aimed at all 4–11 year olds, regardless of their reading ability and launches in your library on Saturday 13th July, finishing on Saturday 14th September.
This summer children will help our super space family, the Rockets, track down books nabbed by mischievous aliens! As they read library books, they will solve clues and collect special stickers to complete their mission folder. Can they find the aliens in time to save the day?
Come in and sign up, visit the library over the summer and read (or listen to) at least six library books. Children will collect special stickers and other rewards along the way – all for FREE at any Surrey library. They can read whatever they like – fact, fiction, joke books or poetry – from our excellent range. They can even borrow audio books and listen if they prefer. Taking part in the Summer Reading Challenge helps children to become more fluent, confident and happy readers.
Children will need to be a library member to take part. It’s free to join but we do ask for proof of address and an adult guarantor. Most Surrey Libraries will also be running special children’s events over the Summer Reading Challenge so please check in your local branch for further details.
We’re looking forward to seeing you soon.
The Summer Reading Challenge is produced by The Reading Agency and delivered by libraries.
