Youngsters invited to take on the Wild World Heroes reading challenge

Wild World Heroes

The Summer Reading Challenge is back in our libraries this summer and the theme this year is Wild World Heroes, a celebration of nature and action for the environment.

Organised by The Reading Agency, the Summer Reading Challenge takes place every year during the summer holidays. You can sign up at your local library, choose your reading goal (they recommend six books), then read any library books of your choice to22 collect special stickers along the way.

There is a certificate and a medal (or medal sticker for under 3's) for everyone who finishes and libraries will also be running various events alongside the challenge to add to the fun.

The Summer Reading Challenge will begin in Cheshire East Libraries on Saturday 3rd July and run all the way through the summer until early September.

A spokesperson for Cheshire East Council said "This year for the first time we are offering families the chance to pre-register by phone starting on Monday 21st June. Just give your library a call (with your child's library card number handy) and library staff will go through the registration details with you and get your pack ready for you collect from Saturday 3rd July."
