Summer Reading Challenge

The Summer Reading Challenge is back in libraries for 2024!

This summer, join the Marvellous Makers, a group of 7 young friends who enjoy making brilliant things inspired by their favourite books. Discover creativity with this year’s Summer Reading Challenge.

Aimed at ages 4 to 11 years, the 2024 Summer Reading Challenge, Marvellous Makers 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 and will also be entered into a prize draw for the chance to win a bundle of creative activity packs.

Signing up

Children can join this year's challenge from Saturday 13 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 they have read 2 books, they can visit the library to tell us about what they have been reading and collect your sticker.

The Summer Reading Challenge will run from Saturday 13 July to Saturday 14 September, is produced by The Reading Agency and delivered in partnership with libraries.
