Summer Reading Challenge 2019

« Back

Prepare for lift off! This year’s Summer Reading Challenge has an out-of-this-world space theme. We need you to help the Rocket family on their important mission to save missing books from alien bandits.

Taking part in the Space Chase challenge is simple:

  • When your summer holidays start, you can sign up for free at your local library.
  • You’ll receive your very own Space Chase mission folder to get you started.
  • Read six library books (or more!) over the holidays to collect special stickers to add to your folder.
  • Collect all the stickers to find the aliens, save the missing books and complete the Challenge.

So grab your space suit and take a giant leap into the library this summer!

What is the Summer Reading Challenge?

The Summer Reading Challenge takes place every year during the summer holidays. You can sign up at your local library, then read six library books of your choice to complete the Challenge. There are exclusive rewards to collect along the way, and it’s FREE to take part!

The Summer Reading Challenge website helps you keep track of your reading all year round: find new books to read, take part in competitions and mini challenges, and play games.
