Summer Reading Challenge

The Summer Reading Challenge is back in libraries for 2022!

This summer, join the Gadgeteers, a group of 6 young friends who enjoy creating new inventions and working together to solve problems. Discover the amazing science and innovation of the world around you with this year’s Summer Reading Challenge.

Aimed at ages 4 to 11 year olds, the Summer Reading Challenge encourages children to read 6 (or more) library books (including eBooks and eAudiobooks) during the summer holidays. Every child that completes the challenge receives a medal and a certificate.

Signing up

Children can join this year's challenge from Saturday 16 July at any Plymouth library. They will receive a pack so that they can track their progress.

They can also create a profile on the Summer Reading Challenge website to get online rewards, play games, and earn badges as they discover new books to read.

Reading books from Plymouth Libraries

Children’s books are available to borrow from the library. eBooks and eAudiobooks can be downloaded for free with a Plymouth library card number and PIN.

After reading 2 books, visit the library to tell us about what you have been reading and collect your sticker.

The Summer Reading Challenge will run from Saturday 16 July to Saturday 17 September and is produced by The Reading Agency and delivered in partnership with libraries.
