Summer Reading Challenge

Summer Reading Challenge 2017

The 2017 Summer Reading Challenge theme has been revealed! This year, there’s something peculiar happening in the libraries...

Animal Agents has been announced as the 2017 Summer Reading Challenge theme, a detective agency manned by all kinds of clever animals – furry, scaly and slippery – and these guys are out to crack the case with a little help from their friends.

Illustrated by award winner Tony Ross, this years' exciting theme will see your little ones receive a host of stickers. By collecting these, young readers will help the Animal Agents find out what’s really been going on behind the scenes!

Animal Agents is a must for all eagle-eyed kids and will test their skills and ingenuity along the way. With the agents on their side, solving these mysteries comes with a large helping of fun!


Taking part

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 8 July 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 six library books or library e-books and complete the challenge.

Once you have signed up at one of our libraries you can join in on official Summer Reading Challenge website, where you take part in even more games, book reviews and loads more!


A little something from us to you..

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.

*Each child must produce their stamped activity card or certificate, and be accompanied by a full paying adult.
