Summer Reading Challenge

Children from across the borough are beign invited to take part in this year's Summer Reading Challenge.

The annual event will be a little different this year as its delivered online, so children will be able to get involved with all of the activities and to post reviews of what they have been reading.

The theme this year is ‘Silly Squad’, which aims to encourage children to read whatever makes them happy, get silly and have fun! 

Rotherham Libraries will also be supporting this year’s challenge by putting on events online throughout the summer, starting this month with library staff talking about their favourite children’s books. 

Throughout the summer there will be regular posts on the Rotherham Libraries Facebook page on Friday afternoons, including staff recommendations of what to read and craft activities including how to make ‘Silly Slime’ and ‘Sock Puppets’ as well as the special ‘Crazy Catapult Caper’.

There are many exciting ebooks available via the Rotherham Libraries website, and anyone who doesn’t have access to a computer at home can get in touch with the library team so that they can arrange for them to collect books and printed activity sheets.

Last year over 1,600 children signed up, with more than 1,000 of them successfully completing the challenge of reading six books in the six week summer holiday.
