What is the Summer Reading Challenge

Every year Slough Libraries with many libraries across the country joins The Reading Agency to encourage children to read more books throughout the summer holidays. Studies have proven it is important for children to keep reading throughout the holidays so children don't experience a dip in their reading levels in the autumn term.

The summer reading challenge is a chance to read for fun and try something new and challenging. Each year there is a theme.

There will be a fun programmme of activities this summer take part in our awesome activities this summer.

Like last year, there will be an online challenge and also ways to get involved in your local library. There are often little incentives like stickers to collect and children completing the challenge are given a certificate and medal.

Ask in your local library in July to find out more or check out the Reading Agency's Summer Reading Challenge site - lots of interesting info all year round.
