As children read library books on the Summer Reading Challenge, they will receive a host of stickers, some with mysterious smells. By collecting these clues in their folder, young readers will help Denis and his friends find out what's really been going on behind the scenes! This fantastic programme includes mischief makers story-telling, art and craft workshops and fun learning activities. It’s all about stimulating the imagination, children gaining confidence, and discovering new talents and skills.

Our challenge the challenge runs until 4 September 2018. The challenge is aimed at children aged 4 – 12 and I hope you will bring your children to join in with the fun. We are also providing a whole series of events at all of our libraries to which the children are invited.

These events are free for library members who have borrowed a book on the event day but some events do need to be booked in advance, please check our events calendar for full details of what's happening for the Summer Reading Challenge.
