Six Books In The Summer Holidays
Every year Northamptonshire Libraries deliver the Summer Reading Challenge.
The challenge is for children to read 6 books during the summer holidays.
It’s important to keep on reading. Children who don’t keep reading during the summer have a lower reading age when they return to school in September than they had before the summer.
You can find out more about the challenge on the webpage: Northamptonshire Summer Reading Challenge (not yet updated for this year) or on the Summer Reading Challenge facebook page: Summer Reading Challenge on facebook.com
The challenge starts on the 10th July and runs until September, when children return to school.
For Adults Too!
There is also an adult reading challenge this year, called Fully Booked. This runs for 6 months, from the 10th July. Full information about this, and the companion podcast, can be found at For The Love Of Books
