It's Summer Reading Challenge time again, and this year the theme is Wild World Heroes, a celebration of reading, nature and action for the environment.

This special nature-themed Challenge is a fantastic way to keep reading over the summer and avoid the reading "dip" that can often happen. We've got lots of books ready for borrowing on the natural world and how we can make a difference to the planet.

Signing up is free, you just need to be a library member (which is also free!) 

The Challenge is simple; children read whatever they like in their chosen format over the summer holidays to receive incentives and a certificate once they've completed it. They can read fiction, fact books, poetry, joke books, picture books or graphic novels. Audiobooks and eBooks can all be used to complete the Challenge and Cumbria Libraries Borrowbox service is a great way to get free access to eBooks and eAudiobooks for the Summer Reading Challenge. We'll have a specially selected collection of books just right for Wild World Heroes!

For more information visit the Summer Reading Challenge website.

The Summer Reading Challenge begins on 10 July and ends in the middle of September, giving children plenty of time over the summer to borrow and read their 6 books and come into the library to tell us what they've read.  Keep up to date by visiting the Cumbria Libraries Facebook page for activities both online and in the library.
