Calling all children aged 4-11 years – sign up to the
‘Silly Squad Summer Reading Challenge 2020!’
The annual Summer Reading Challenge for children aged 4-11 years is being delivered online this year and supports reading and literacy and helps promote reading for pleasure.
This year’s challenge is already underway, but you can join in at any time. The theme is Silly Squad with a focus on the enjoyment of reading for pleasure; you can read anything that makes you happy and youcan register for the challenge here https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/
You can read books available at home, provided by school or those free to download and borrow from Worcestershire Libraries. Remember, library membership is free and Worcestershire residents of all ages can join instantly online with a digital membership – a wide range of junior fiction is available from the digital library including a dedicated ‘Silly Squad’ collection of books in ebook and eaudio format using the ‘Borrowbox’ app.
Unfortunately, due to the impact of Covid-19, Worcestershire Libraries are unable to host the Summer Reading Challenge in their library buildings or run any face to face events and activities. However, many library services, events and activities are now available online - visit the Digital Library Hub to explore or access the SRC events and activities via Worcestershire Libraries Facebook page.
