​Junior bookworms - can you take the Summer Reading Challenge?

Young members of Bury’s libraries can win prizes by taking part in this year’s Summer Reading Challenge.

The theme this year is “The Big Friendly Read”, and is open to all youngsters aged from 4 to 11.

Those who read at least six library books of their choice over the long school holidays will be given special collector cards, and be entered into a prize draw.

The challenge starts on Saturday 16 July and is free to enter. Anyone who is not a library member can sign up now and join in.

There’s a website and an App to add to the fun:

Bury libraries will also be running some fun activities alongside The Big Friendly Read, including some Raspberry pi sessions.


Press release issued: 22 June 2016.
