The BIG Read 2014/2015

Research shows children can maintain and even increase their reading levels if they keep reading over the summer break.

The BIG Read challenge is a great way for your child to read books, complete fun activities and be in to win prizes.

It is free and any child aged 5 -13 years can join at their local library between 15 December and 6 January. The challenge finishes 28 January.

We also run summer reading challenges for the smaller members of your family. Click here for more information about Caterpillar Capers (for 0-2 years) and Storybook Summer (for 2-4).
