Providing kids with the perfect wet-weather activity this summer holiday, Gloucestershire Libraries have launched the 2018 Summer Reading Challenge.
Each year the event encourages children from across the county to sign up and read six books connected to a specific theme. This year, the theme is ‘Mischief Makers’, celebrating the 80th anniversary of the popular children’s comic, The Beano.
Launching on Saturday 14 July 2018, children will be invited to sign up in their local Gloucestershire library, where they’ll be given a map of Beanotown to help them record their Summer Reading Challenge journey.
The scheme will run for two months, from mid July until Saturday 8 September 2018, when it’s hoped that children will have attended their local library three times each week to read six books during the holidays.
The scheme is completely free, and will be available in all libraries operated by Gloucestershire County Council. Upon completion, children will receive a certificate and a medal to celebrate their achievement.
