The Summer Reading Challenge returns to South Tyneside Libraries for the school holidays.
This year’s theme is ‘Ready, Set Read!’
‘Ready, Set, Read!’ aims to keep children’s minds and bodies active over the summer break, empowering children to forge new connections with others and unleash the power of play, sport and physical activity through reading.
This year’s Summer Reading Challenge is delivered in partnership with children’s charity the Youth Sport Trust, which focuses on reading, sport and play.
What the challenge will include:
During the six-week holidays, youngsters aged 4 to 11 years old can collect rewards as they read books from the library.
The challenge will feature inspiring books to read and awesome rewards to collect along the way.
How to join and take part
From Saturday 8 July, children can sign up at their local library and read six books of their choice, and return them before Saturday 16 September to complete the challenge.
It’s free to take part and easy to join!
Where the challenge will take place
The Summer Reading Challenge will be delivered in libraries across South Tyneside including:
the Council’s multi-service hubs (The Word, Hebburn Central, Jarrow Focus and Cleadon Park)
the community libraries run by volunteer-based organisations (Boldon and Cleadon, Perth Green and Whitburn)
