Join the challenge from July to September
The children's summer reading challenge runs from Saturday 1 July to Sunday 3 September 2017. Visit the Summer Reading Challenge website to find a book to read, take part in competitions and play games.
How to take part
To take part, simply sign up at your local library and read 6 library books of your choice. And that's it.
Free to join and fun rewards
It's free to join and there are exclusive rewards to collect along the way.
You'll receive a special collector’s folder once you've read at least 1 book. As you borrow and read all 6 library books over the summer, you can collect 6 special stickers to complete your folder.
Once you've collected all the stickers, you'll be able to crack the case and catch the crook. You'll also receive a certificate and a medal for completing the challenge.
