There will be a chance to join East Riding Libraries and Customer Services on Planet Library this summer for an out-of-this-world adventure!
The Summer Reading Challenge, produced by the Reading Agency, returns to East Riding Libraries with the theme of ‘Space Chase’ inspired by the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing in 1969.
Aimed at primary school children, the challenge to read six books over the summer holidays encourages reading for pleasure whilst ensuring reading ability is maintained during the long break from school.
By reading throughout the holidays and attending sessions at local libraries, participants can collect special stickers and other rewards along the way, all for free!
Councillor Shaun Horton, portfolio holder for tourism, leisure and culture, said: “Join us and our super space family, the Rockets, for an exciting mission to track down books stolen by sneaky aliens!”
“This fun and educational Challenge is open to all reading abilities and encourages a love of reading amongst all who take part.
“I am sure that the Summer Reading Challenge will be a huge success once again in the East Riding.”
Lauren Child, Waterstones children’s laureate, added: “The Summer Reading Challenge is about reading for the pleasure of reading. Stories are important because they nourish us and broaden our thinking”
Alongside The Challenge this year, there will also be an opportunity to take part in ‘Space Craft’ sessions for just £1 per child per session, or £5 for six weeks
Places are limited, so booking is recommended online from 1 June at: www.eastridinglibraries.co.uk/summerreadingchallenge or pop into your local library or mobile. Space Craft can be booked and paid for at your first Summer Reading Challenge session at your local East Riding Library.
