Summer Reading Challenge

The challenge is for children aged four to 11 to read six library books over the eight weeks of the summer in return for various fun prizes, including a medal and certificate on completion. Children register at a Wiltshire library where they receive their own special folder to record their reading. It's all free and can make a real difference to your child's motivation and enjoyment of reading.

Well done to the 7,500 children who took part in this year's Ready, Set, Read! Summer Reading Challenge and to all the volunteers who supported library staff in making this a special summer of reading for the children.

The Summer Reading Challenge may be over, but we now have an exciting new reading challenge for four to 16 year olds! The Story Adventurers' Club is a wonderful way to discover new books and motivate reading.

Don't forget we have lots of lovely books for your children to cosy up and enjoy reading. Need help finding the right book? Just ask us when you next visit one of our libraries ( Library locations, opening times and mobile libraries) or email (opens new window). There is also a lot of reading inspiration on the Summer Reading Challenge (opens new window) website all year round, including games, book reviews, reading activities and videos from the best children's authors and illustrators around.
