Summer Reading Challenge

The Summer Reading Challenge is back, and it’s time to get wild!

The Summer Reading Challenge is an annual event which takes place in libraries across the UK, encouraging children aged 4 – 12 to keep up their reading during the summer holidays. This year, the theme for the challenge is “Wild World Heroes” - a celebration of the world around us and the heroes who take action for the environment.

Take the challenge

Every child who orders books through our Connect & Collect service will automatically be registered for the challenge. To collect your completer’s certificate and medal you just need to collect three bags of books over the holidays!
