Got children aged between 4 and 11? If so, make sure you take part in Hertfordshire Libraries’ Summer Reading Challenge, an activity designed to make sure the summer holidays are fun and the seasonal ‘reading dip’ is banished.
The Story Lab website
This year the theme is ‘Story Lab’ – where children discover and share stories, winning bronze, silver and gold medals as they do so. You can sign your child up for free right now at any Hertfordshire branch.
Find out more on the Herts Libraries website here or on the Storylab site here.
The aim of the challenge is to get children to read six books from their library during the summer holidays. They get a membership pack including a Story Lab model card and bookmark which will help them keep track of their reading adventures.
The Summer Reading Challenge is designed for children of all ages and reading abilities. They can read any books they like – including audio books – as long as they are borrowed from the library.
This provides libraries with a huge membership and borrowing boost every year, so it’s a great way to support them. Library membership is also a great investment in every child’s future – and they’re never too young to join.
