Get ready to switch on your reading gene and discover the power of reading with this year’s Summer Reading Challenge 2022 – Gadgeteers.
This year’s theme, in partnership with the Science Museum Group, will show children that science; invention and technology is all around us every day and will inspire children to be curious and to get creative.
Children between 4 and 12 years are encouraged to read between 1 and 6 books for enjoyment during the summer holidays.
The fun starts on Saturday, 9 July at Bolling Hall Library and continues until Saturday, 10 September.
It’s free and easy to join with a library card and you can read any library books you like. If you don’t have a library card you can join at your local library or use the online joining form.
Children who join will receive a Gadgeteers kit bag, complete with reading poster, stickers and bookmark. When you have read 3 books you will receive your second set of stickers and a science- facts paper game. If you complete the Challenge by reading 6 books, you’ll receive your third set of stickers and a Gadgeteers Certificate and Medal – in recognition of your fantastic reading achievement.
