Summer Reading Challenge success!

The Summer Reading Challenge starts every year at the beginning of the school holidays: can you read six books and get your gold medal? This year’s challenge was rounded off by a grand party at the Central Library, where 40 of our keen summer holiday readers were rewarded with lots of yummy food and drink and entertained by a unicyclist-juggler who taught everyone circus skills. Each attendee was then called up on stage to receive a certificate from Councillor Rutherford, who was full of praise for all their efforts!

This year we also had lots of arts and crafts events in the libraries where we read stories and made masks and aliens. You may know some of the stories: “Owl Babies”,  “Elmer the Elephant”, “The Fish who could Wish”, “Aliens love Underpants”.  The results from these craft days were so impressive, we couldn’t resist showing them off here…

Our librarians, Penny and Amy,  posted on the Summer Reading Challenge blog  to answer questions and talk about our favourite reads, including chats with Caroline Lawrence (who wrote the Roman Mysteries), and Robert Muchamore (author of the CHERUB books).

60 children altogether have completed the Summer Reading Challenge at the Central Library, and many more at our other branches (well done all!). The Challenge has been extended at Brompton Library until the 14th September,  to catch any late-comers.
