General details

The Summer Reading Challenge is aimed at children aged 4 – 11 years and is for everyone regardless of their reading ability.  Taking part is easy and free.  Just visit a library to sign up.  Borrow books through the summer and earn stickers and other free rewards along the way.  You’ll get a certificate after you’ve read 6 books.
