There’s a spine-tingling adventure waiting for children in South Gloucestershire Libraries this summer!
The theme for the Summer Reading Challenge this year is Creepy House. The challenge begins in all South Gloucestershire Libraries on 13th July and runs until 14th September. It’s free to join in the fun.
Children are challenged to read just 6 books to collect their very own medal and certificate. More than 6,100 children took part in Story Lab last summer. The parent of one child who did said ‘I thought the Summer Reading Challenge was a fantastic incentive to encourage my son to read throughout the summer. He thoroughly enjoyed taking part and couldn’t wait to reach silver to get his wristband. The gold medal at the end was a really nice touch and made my son feel special.’
Visit any South Gloucestershire Library this summer for children to take part in Creepy House and collect their own gold medal.
Libraries are also holding free activities throughout the holiday to help children complete the challenge. Visit our local libraries or log on to www.southglos.gov.uk/libraries to find out more.
