What is the Summer Reading Challenge?
The Summer Reading Challenge is a national event, from the Reading Agency, which encourages children to enjoy reading and to visit their library during the summer. Borrowing 6 books over 3 visits, children get rewards and opportunities to get involved with other events and activities. It’s a great way to discover reading for pleasure and keeping up their reading skills after a difficult year.
This year’s theme is Wild World Heroes - with great new books and activities at your local Gloucestershire library to help learn more about nature and how to protect our environment!
Pop in to Tewkesbury library (next to the Roses Theatre)anytime from the 10th July. If you’re not a member, just join up at the same time - it’s all free.
Pick up your first two books and sign up with our staff who’ll give you your Summer Reading Challenge poster. That’s your first visit and you’ve started your challenge!
You then just have visit two more times – picking up another two books each time as well as other rewards such as our great stickers. On your third visit you’ll also get your completer’s certificate and medal.
Remember - there’s no rush - you’ve got until 10th September to finish but keep an eye out for what else is going on at your local library!
