Summer Reading Challenge

The 2017 Summer Reading Challenge theme has been revealed. The challenge, which people can take part in at Leicestershire Libraries is called Animal Agents, illustrated by award winner Tony Ross.

Children's reading can 'dip' during the long summer holidays. The annual Summer Reading Challenge helps get three quarters of a million children into libraries to keep up their reading skills and confidence.

Children from 3-12 years will be able to join the 2017 Summer Reading Challenge in all Leicestershire Libraries from July 8th and will be able to help the animal detectives solve some puzzling mysteries.

Children will collect stickers and incentives and be rewarded with a medal and certificate as they read 6 library books or library e-books and complete the challenge.

Once you have signed up at one of our libraries you can join in online at  where you can play games, read book reviews and much more.

Children participating in the challenge can also get themselves free* entry into Bosworth Battlefield and The 1620s House and Garden  at Donington le Heath.

Also look out for ticketed children's events during the summer.
