This year's Summer Reading Challenge theme is 'Mischief Makers', in partnership with The Beano. Explore a map of Beanotown to find the mysterious buried treasure and become an ultimate mischief maker! Solve clues and collect stickers, have lots of fun and adventures along the way! There is a medal and certificate for all children who read 6 books to complete the challenge.
The Challenge is open to pre-school and primary school aged children and is designed for all reading abilities.
Children will be able to sign up for the challenge from Saturday 14 July.
There are lots of opportunities for young people to volunteer to help with the challenge. From helping host events and activities to registering readers and listening to the children talk about the books they have read. Ask in the library for details of how to sign up as a volunteer.
This year we are also offering young people aged 13-24 the opportunity to become a Reading Hack and develop their volunteering experience - find out more at
