Summer Reading Challenge

The Summer Reading Challenge is here! It is the UK’s biggest annual reading promotion for children aged 4 plus. There is no upper age restriction for people in our area. The Summer Reading Challenge combines FREE access to books with fun, creative activities in public libraries during the summer holidays. Throughout the challenge, children are supported whilst discovering new authors and illustrators and exploring a wide range of different types of books and ways of reading. 


How the challenge works

  • Children sign up at their local North Lincolnshire library (from Saturday 9th July) and receive six fictional Gadgeteers

  • Children borrow and read at least six library books of their own choice during the summer

  • Library staff and young volunteers are on hand to advise and run family friendly activities

  • Children who complete the Summer Reading Challenge are presented with a certificate and medal

  • Summer reading challenge events include breakfast and books at:

-Riddings Library, Tuesdays at 9.30-11am

-The Angel, Brigg Library, Thursdays at 9.30-11am

-Scunthorpe Central, Fridays at 9.30-11am

  • The Challenge ends Saturday 10th September.


I look forward to seeing how many of you have completed the challenge in September. Please bring your certificates and medals to our achievement assembly in school.
