Reading & Libraries
Christmas Competition 'Borrow 6 Books'
We're always looking to improve your experience. Please send us your feedback.
The Summer Reading Challenge takes place during the school holidays every summer at a library near you.
The challenge, aimed at 4 to 11 year-olds, is to read six or more library books over the summer. Each year's challenge has a different theme.
The Summer Reading Challenge is produced by The Reading Agency and runs in libraries all over the country.
Children who take part:
It’s fun and totally free. Find out more here.
In 2017 children joined with the Animal Agents, a very special detective agency to help them crack a tricky case. In total 9,732 children took part with 5,384 going on to read all 6 books and complete the challenge.
We celebrated their achievements at a celebration event at Mansfield Central Library. Councillor Sue Saddington, Vice-Chairman of Nottinghamshire County Council, presented children who were representing their local library with a certificate. The volunteers who supported the Summer Reading Challenge also attended and were officially thanked for their valuable contribution.
