Summer Reading Challenge – Mischief Makers Sat 21 Jul – Sun 2 Sep
by Alan Comber
This year’s Reading Challenge is all about the Beano and cartoon characters.
Due to the popularity of the challenge, a session will run every day at Kesgrave Library with three days of sign up in the week before the challenge starts on Tuesday 17th, Wednesday18th and Thursday 19th July from 3.30 – 5.00 p.m.
The session times during the school holidays have also increased, as we are adding a Monday morning 9.30 – 11.30 a.m. Other session times are, Tuesday and Saturday 2.30-5.00pm, Wednesday and Thursday 2.30 – 5.30 p.m. Friday 9.00 – 12 noon and Sunday 10.00 – 1.00 p.m.
During these times, children can come in, enrol and talk to the volunteers about the books they have read. There will also be free craft activities which are inspired by the Beano and cartoon theme. To finish the challenge each child needs to read 6 books, at least one of which needs to be non-fiction.
If you are not sure what the Summer Reading Challenge is all about, staff from the library will be visiting most of the local primary schools during the next half-term to explain to the children what is involved or you can phone the library directly.
