The Summer Reading Challenge will launch at Crewkerne Library on the morning of Saturday July 14th, when cakes and squash will be available. This year’s theme is Mischief Makers and celebrates the 80th anniversary of Beano and its popular comic characters of Dennis and his dog Gnasher and many other colourful characters.
Children who sign up for the reading challenge receive a themed bookmark and need to read six library books of their choice during the school Summer holidays. There are exclusive rewards to collect along the way, as well as a host of fun activities and events taking place at the library during the holiday period. The Summer Reading Challenge is a national annual event, organised by the Reading Agency and Libraries and is free to take part in.
