Summer Reading Challenge

by Saturday, 107 children aged between 4 and 12  had signed on for the Summer Reading Challenge at the library. They read six library books, tell us about them, and get small prizes for each book they read.  If they complete all six, they get a medal and a certificate.  Reading helps to support their learning in the next term, and beyond.  They must join the library first, but that’s easy – a parent, grandparent or carer can help them enrol . Get them reading, and rainy days will never be the same.
