Summer Reading Challenge


Every year, Birmingham Libraries joins in with the Summer Reading Challenge.

Children can collect stickers and other goodies and draw a picture or write a review for each book they read. Can you meet the challenge and read six books over the summer holidays?

The theme in 2012 was Story Lab, inspired by the Olympics, Paralympics and Cultural Olympiad. There were lots of 'going for gold' themed books in local libraries to inspire your reading choices!

There are also lots of fun activity sessions in libraries across the city every summer.

There will be more details of how to join in the 2013 Reading Challenge on this webpage nearer the time.
