About the Summer Reading Challenge

The Summer Reading Challenge is produced by The Reading Agency and runs in libraries all over the country.   

The challenge, aimed at children aged 4 to 11 year, is to read six or more library books over the summer.  

2019 is the 20th year of the Summer Reading Challenge.

Children who take part:

  • are more enthusiastic about reading
  • maintain their reading level over the holidays
  • return to schools keen and ready to learn
  • boost their confidence and self-esteem.
