The Summer Reading Challenge is here
The Reading Agency’s Summer Reading Challenge is underway at Conwy libraries until September.
The Summer Reading Challenge invites 4-12 year olds to read books over the summer holidays.
It’s free to take part and last year 1,493 children in Conwy joined in.
This year children can sign up to the new digital Summer Reading Challenge platform at www.summerreadingchallenge.org.uk
Where they can:
- set their reading goal
- find book recommendations
- take part in games and competitions
- access fun resources
There will also be information on how to find your local library service and access e-lending.
As part of the Summer Reading Challenge through the Call and Collect service, children will get a ‘Silly Squad’ folder, stickers, pencil and wristband when they join the challenge.
Cllr Dr Mark Baker, Conwy’s Cabinet Member for Arts, Heritage and Culture, said, “The Summer Reading challenge is always popular in Conwy Libraries. This year children can borrow library books through the Call and Collect service and explore games and activities on the Silly Squad website. I encourage you to take the opportunity to share and talk about books as a family, and to celebrate your child’s reading achievements.”
