The library team are looking forward forward to this year's Summer Reading Challenge which is now open for registrations.
This year's theme is "Gadgeteers" with an emphasis on science, technology and inventions, but participants can borrow and read books on any subject as part of the challenge.
The main challenge is for children aged from 4 upwards, with a "mini challenge " also available for those under 4.
The idea is to read 6 books during the course of the summer and to come into the library after each 2 books to tell us what you thought of them. You will receive a Reading Challenge booklet and rewards (bookmark, pencil, stickers ) for each 2 books read and a certificate and medal when you finish. All participants who complete the challenge will be entered into a prize draw for the chance to win science and technology kits and book tokens.
We will be holding events linked to the reading challenge during the school holidays which will be posted here and on the community facebook page.
See you soon to sign up for the challenge :) Jane, Pam , Janet, Carole and Jan
