Libraries throw reading challenge out to West Berks adults and children

More news, no ads


West Berkshire Libraries are again running a Summer Reading Challenge for children, calling on all children of primary school age to borrow and read six library books between now and September 15.

This year’s fantastic challenge is called Gadgeteers and has been produced in partnership with the Science Museum Group as a celebration of science, ideas and innovation, as well, of course, as encouraging children to read for pleasure. If you have children aged 4-11 years, bring them along to any West Berks library to sign up for the challenge. They will receive a special collector’s poster when they start and can collect stickers for it as they read. There’s medals and certificates for everyone who completes the challenge.

Pre-school children and others who are not yet reading can also have fun through visiting their local library, looking at picture books – perhaps with a parent or carer – and collecting their own stickers to complete a Mini Challenge card.


Both challenges are a lot of fun and it’s all FREE!

And there’s a challenge for adults and older children too in the Grown-ups2! Challenge. Just borrow and read three library books by September 15 to enter a prize draw to win a WiFi tablet. Read anything you like, fiction or non-fiction. Audiobooks, e-books and e-audiobooks count too.

Sign up and enjoy a summer of reading.
