Summer Reading Challenge

This is a great way to keep your child reading during the school summer holidays.

Welcome to the Summer Reading Challenge!

The Summer Reading Challenge is the UK’s biggest reading for pleasure programme for children aged 4 to 11, delivered via public libraries.

Children can sign up at their local library or online

Contact your local library today.

Last year, in Conwy Libraries, 1043 children joined the Challenge.

The Summer Reading Challenge:

Significantly improves reading confidence and independence

For children who took part in 2022:

  • 77% read more over the summer holidays
  • 75% improved their reading skills
  • 71% felt more confident about their reading

How it works:

  • Children sign up through their local library and receive a collector folder.
  • They set a reading goal and borrow books of their choice during the summer, collecting special stickers and incentives.
  • Library staff help children to discover new books that suit their interests and reading level and run a programme of free themed activities in the library.
  • Children who complete the Challenge are presented with a certificate and a medal.
  • Children can take part online, too! Summer Reading Challenge
