Summer Reading Challenge - Gadgeteers

We're joining with the Reading Agency to run the summer reading challenge for children aged 4 to 11, encouraging them to read six library books over the summer holiday period. The theme of this years challenge is Gadgeteers with the aim to show children that science is all around them, and helps them with whatever they love doing.

The challenge starts on Saturday 16 July and finishes on Saturday 10 September.

To take part children need to sign up at their nearest library where they will be given a colourful fold out poster showing the setting for this year’s challenge - an imaginary community centre.
