During the coming school holiday period the library will be running its regular Summer Reading Challenge – a programme aimed at children from 4 to 11 years. The “challenge” is straightforward and enjoyable: reading at least six library books (any sort of book – library staff will be on hand to help choose) and visiting the library regularly.
This year’s programme is entitled Space Chase.
To get started children sign up at the library. Then for each book they read, they will get a sticker, and those who complete the challenge get a medal.
Here’s the list of special activities the library is offering during this period, all on Thursdays, starting at 3pm, and all free of charge.
