Mischief Makers, Summer Reading Challenge 2018

Join Mischief Makers, Summer Reading Challenge 2018 at any library during staffed opening hours. All libraries’ staffed days and hours changed in October 2017 – find our new ones for individual libraries here.


Saturday 14 July – Saturday 8 September

There’s a ton of fun waiting for you at your library this summer – Join Dennis, Gnasher and friends on a hunt for Beanotown’s famous buried treasure!

 

Read six library books over the summer, collect special stickers and explore your map of Beanotown to find clues. But watch out, Dennis is usually up to all kinds of mischief.  He’ll make sure some of those stickers are extra stinky!  Read all six books and you’ll get a medal and certificate too. It’s FREE to take part.

Please encourage your children to visit the library and sign up during staffed opening hours and see the difference the Summer Reading Challenge makes to their reading.

My son enjoyed the Summer Reading Challenge very much and his reading improved” Parent, Patchway
