Summer reading challenge

Last updated by on Monday, July 8, 2024


The Essex Libraries' Summer Reading Challenge 2024 is almost here. The Summer Reading Challenge encourages children to explore different genres of books and take part in fun and creative challenges throughout the summer.


The challenge is a great way to get children to their local libraries and build a love of reading. It will begin on Saturday 20 July, so get yourself down to the library and sign up.
