Summer Reading Challenge

Summer Reading Challenge

Children are invited to sign up to the national Silly Squad - this years theme for the Summer Reading Challenge - where there will be lots of information, quizzes, resources and book suggestions for them to enjoy.

The challenge will run digitally online from June to September, launching with a week of activity from Monday 1 June, with the official launch on 5 June 2020.

Locally, Derbyshire libraries will be joining the fun throughout the summer by offering online story times, mini book reviews and recommendations, a forum for sharing ideas and suggestions about books and a regular craft activity.

The Silly Squad is a group of madcap animals looking for fun and the aim is to encourage children and their families to have fun too, get silly and read anything that makes them happy. Whether that's a comic, joke book, poetry, fiction or non-fiction, in digital or print format, from e-book lending through Derbyshire libraries online or reading books they already have at home.

Find more information and the programme of activities about the summer reading challenge and look at Derbyshire Libraries' Facebook or Twitter.

Children who aren't library members join the library with the help of a parent or guardian. A member of staff will then be in touch with their library card number so that children can borrow eBooks, eMagazines and eAudiobooks.
