Children often have a dip in their reading over the summer, the Summer Reading Challenge, produced by the Reading Agency and delivered by libraries, has been proven to stop this as well as changing children’s attitudes in a positive way towards reading and libraries.

The challenge is for4–11-year-olds to read 6 library books over 8 weeks of the summer in return for various fun prizes, including a medal and certificate on completion. This year the challenge runs from Saturday 16 July to Saturday 10 September.
