Libraries launch reading challenge for adults and children in West Berks


West Berkshire Libraries are once again holding a summer reading challenge for children, calling on all primary school-aged children to borrow and read six library books by September 15.

This year’s fantasy challenge is called Gadgeteers and has been produced in partnership with the Science Museum Group to celebrate science, ideas and innovation, as well as, of course, to encourage children to read for fun. If you have kids ages 4-11, bring them to any West Berks library to sign up for the challenge. They will receive a special collectible poster when they start and can collect stickers as they play. There are medals and certificates for everyone who takes up the challenge.

Preschoolers and others who don’t yet read can also have fun visiting their local library, looking at picture books – perhaps with a parent or guardian – and collecting their own stickers. to complete a Mini Challenge map.


Both challenges are great fun and it’s all FREE!

And there is also a challenge for adults and older children in the Grown-ups2! Challenge. Just borrow and read three library books by September 15 to enter a raffle to win a Wi-Fi tablet. Read anything you love, fiction or non-fiction. Audiobooks, e-books, and e-audiobooks also count.

Sign up and enjoy a summer of reading.
