Once a year the library holds the following events for children:

  1. Summer Reading Challenge – aimed at children aged between 4 to 11, the challenge is for them to read 6 books over their 6 week school holiday. Run by almost all libraries in the UK, the challenge is completely free. Ideally register your child at the start of the summer holidays so they have the maximum time available to read their 6 books. Just simply pop down to the library and staff will enrol your child and give them a membership pack. The challenge starts there!
  1. Read for my School – is a competition held annually between January and March. It invites all children between the ages of 7 and 10 attending Primary schools in England to take part, to promote, celebrate and encourage reading for pleasure. The competition encourages children to read as many books as possible using a free online service where they can make their own choices and explore different genres and formats, with the winners getting prizes from top retailers. 2014 was a pilot year for Read for My School in Secondary schools, where pupils aged 11-13 throughout England could participate.

Why not become a member? It’s easy and free to join and provides you with access to the 24 hour online service to renew your books or reserve others, plus much more!
