Summer Reading Challenge for children up to 12

Shropshire Newsroom has announced that over the summer libraries across Shropshire will be bursting with activities to support the Summer Reading Challenge. This is a national reading scheme devised by The Reading Agency, and widely recognised as a great way to keep children reading over the long summer holidays. The theme is Storylab, and there will be over 80 library events to choose from including visits to libraries by author turned scientist Dr Julius Drake, craft sessions, story and rhyme times, treasure hunts, creative writing groups and much more.

Children age 0-4 can register for the Bookstart Bear Club, and the Storylab challenge is open to children and young people aged from four to 12 years.  Launch days and activities will take place in libraries from Saturday 14 July; people should ask at their local library for details of events near them. Eventually details will also be posted on the Shropshire Council library website.

Details of the Summer Reading Challenge scheme can be found on their website. Here is their introductory video:
