Summer Reading Challenge 2018 @ All West Berkshire Libraries
Aug 17 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 am

SUMMER READING CHALLENGE 2018

If you have a child aged 4-11 years, look out for the invitations going out through schools for them to join Mischief Makers, our Summer Reading Challenge for 2018.

Children need to be library members, then sign up in any West Berks library to receive their ‘treasure map’ reading log. Over the summer, they can collect stickers and other incentives for borrowing and reading library books – at least six books by the end of September to receive a certificate, golden medal and voucher for a free child visit to Beale Wildlife Park, near Pangbourne.

The challenge is produced by The Reading Agency and delivered by libraries across the country. This summer we’re excited to be working with Beano magazine in their 80th anniversary year, so watch out for Dennis, Gnasher and friends as children collect their stickers and solve their treasure clues.

The Summer Reading challenge is endorsed by the Department for Education. It’s FREE to take part. for more information and to get started, please ask in your local library.
