Join the Silly Squad with this year’s digital Summer Reading Challenge! A fabulously fun way to encourage children aged 4 to 11 to read during the summer when reading skills can otherwise take a nose-dive.
Finish 6 books this summer to earn a medal and certificate. You’ll get your completer’s medal and certificate in the autumn either from your local library or from your school.
You will need to register your children(s) online for them to take part in the Challenge. Click here to register.
This year’s Silly Squad theme gives families the chance to have fun, with children being encouraged to read anything that makes them happy – whether it be a comic, joke book, poetry, fiction or non-fiction, in digital or print format, or from what they already have at home.
You’ll find thousands of children’s ebooks and audiobooks free to download using our BorrowBox service with lots of titles always available without a wait. You’ll find links to some of our recommendations on this webpage and information about downloading ebooks and audiobooks.
You can also use our brand new ‘We Select You Collect’ service to borrow books. Library staff will regularly handpick a selection of books for you to collect from the entrance of your local library. You can choose how often and how many books you’d like.
Enjoy the Challenge!
