Pembrokeshire Libraries

Summer Reading Challenge 2018

Join the ‘Mischief Makers’ at your local library this summer!

If you’re on the lookout for fun, free activities for your children to do over the summer holidays – then why not take part in the 2018 Summer Reading Challenge?

Every year, thousands of families all over the country take part in the challenge – the UK’s biggest reading event for children in libraries.

“The aim is to encourage children between the ages of four and eleven to read six books from their local library during the summer holidays, with lots of fun and rewards along the way,” said Library Development Officer Laura Evans.

“What’s great about the Summer Reading Challenge is that you can choose any library book you like to count towards your rewards.”

Children can sign up for free to take part in the challenge at any library in the county, and a range of free storytime and activity sessions will take place at several libraries in Pembrokeshire.

The theme of this year’s Reading Challenge is Mischief Makers, inspired by the much-loved children's title Beano, which celebrates its 80th anniversary.

Children will explore a map of Beanotown to find a hidden treasure chest full of pranks and become ultimate Mischief Makers!
