Pembrokeshire Libraries

Summer Reading Challenge 2019

Join the Space Chase 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 2019 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.

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 Space Chase, an out-of-this-world adventure inspired by the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.

Children will solve clues and collect special stickers to complete their mission folder, helping the super space family track down books nabbed by mischievous aliens!
