Summer Reading Challenge- all Liverpool Libraries
The Summer Reading Challenge encourages pupils to visit their local library and read 6 books over the Summer break. Children read six or more books of their choice: fiction, non-fiction, joke books, picture books; any books they like as long as they are borrowed from the library. They talk about them in the library with a member of
staff and receive rewards along the way and a certificate when they complete the Challenge.
This year’s Summer Reading Challenge is called Mischief Makers, inspired by the much-loved iconic children’s title Beano, which celebrates its 80th anniversary. Children will explore a map of Beanotown to find the mysterious buried treasure and become ultimate mischief makers. Parents/carers can sign children (4-11) up for the Summer Reading Challenge by asking at the desk at all Liverpool Council Libraries for the challenge pack.
Free Family Events at Central Library
Throughout the Summer holidays, Liverpool Central Library has a programme of fun and free activities for families with something on each weekday (except Bank Holiday Monday). The sessions include magicians, poets, storytellers, drama and craft activities!
