A large busy library situated in the centre of Loughborough.

There’s something peculiar happening in Leicestershire's libraries...

Children from 3-12 years will be able to join the Summer Reading Challenge 2017 in all Leicestershire Libraries from 8 July.

This year, young readers will help a bunch of furry, scaly and slippery Animal Agents to crack cases, while they read their way to medals, certificates and more.

Visit your local library to sign up, and let the fun begin!
