Wild World Heroes, Summer Reading Challenge 2021

Surrey Libraries' brings you the summer of reading. With events, activities, challenges and so much more, get ready for your reading adventure.

This year's Summer Reading Challenge theme is Wild World Heroes and has been developed in partnership with WWF UK, the world's leading independent conservation organisation. Wild World Heroes will inspire children to stand up for the future of our planet.

Launching Saturday 10 July, this year's Reading Challenge is a massive celebration of reading, nature, and action for the environment! Presented by The Reading Agency and delivered by libraries, the Challenge motivates children aged 4 to 11 to keep reading to build their skills, confidence, and to help prevent the summer reading 'dip'.
