This year’s Summer Reading Challenge
is Space Chase; an out-of-this-world adventure celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.
Your child can help our super space family, the Rockets, on a special mission – and have tons of fun along the way! Sign up for the Challenge at your local library.
Your child will be given a special mission folder to
keep a record of their reading. Read at least six library books and collect stickers and rewards. They receive a certificate when they finish. It’s fun and totally free!
At the heart of the Challenge is children choosing and sharing any books – in any format – that they like. Novels, fact books, joke books, e-books and audio books all count and your library has staff and volunteers to help your child choose books they will really enjoy. Teachers tell us that children return to school with a new enthusiasm for reading too.
Fun for all the family
The Challenge is a great time to share and talk
about books as a family and to celebrate your child’s reading achievements. Sitting down with your own book, newspaper or magazine sets a good example to kids – they will copy you – and reading a book together can really encourage a love of stories.
Explore your library
While your child chooses their books for Space Chase, why not pick up a book yourself and discover the range of other great things on offer at the library?
From reading groups to computer use, it’s your library, so let us help you make the most of it!
