This year’s Summer Reading Challenge is Mischief Makers, celebrating the 80th anniversary of the much-loved comic, Beano. Children can help Dennis, Gnasher and friends explore Beanotown to find the mysterious buried treasure – with tons of fun along the way.

It’s totally free and to get started. All your child has to do is sign up at the library where they will be given a collector poster to keep a record of their Summer Reading Challenge journey. As they read their books, each child will receive special stickers to complete their poster. Once they have collected all the stickers they will be able to find the buried treasure and become top mischief makers.

Children are encouraged to read at least 6 library books. They can be any books they like – novels, fact books, joke books, e-books or audio books, they all count – and your library will have staff and volunteers on hand to help children choose books they will really enjoy.

Come along to your local library to sign up from Saturday, 14 July 2018. 

Children are very welcome to bring the rewards into school during the first week back.
