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 years, is to read six or more library books over the summer.   There are stickers and other reward for every book read.  Children who complete the challenge receive a medal and a certificate. 

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.

How the Summer Reading Challenge Works

  • Children sign up at the library to start their Challenge.
  • Borrow books from the library  - Children choose the books they want to read on their Challenge, recording what they have read in their folder.  Library staff and volunteers are on hand to chat to children about books they have read.
  • For every book read, children will pick up stickers along with other rewards as they progress through the Challenge.  
  • Every child who completes the challenge, by reading 6 library books, receives a medal and certificate.

It’s all free, fun and a great way to keep children reading over the summer holidays.
