The Summer Reading Challenge 2018 in East Riding Libraries, in association with The Reading Agency, proved very popular once again.
The theme this year was Mischief Makers, and the Challenge was a chance to read library books over the summer holidays, join in with fun themed weekly activity sessions, collect special stickers and explore the map of Beanotown to find clues.
This year, 1029 children started The Challenge in the East Riding and 916 completed, giving a very impressive completion rate of 89%. This compares very favourably with the national completion rate of 58%.
Questionnaires were given out to both parents and children, and the responses were very encouraging :
Councillor Richard Burton, portfolio holder for leisure, tourism and culture, said : “ Once again, the Summer Reading Challenge has been a resounding success in the East Riding, with a very pleasing number of children taking part – and completing – the Challenge. But it is especially satisfying that every single parent whose child took part has seen a positive impact on their child’s reading, and that just about every child saw it as positive, too."
East Riding Librarians are already planning Summer Reading Challenge 2019, and promise it will be 'out of this world'………
