Summer Reading Challenge

Every year Northamptonshire Libraries deliver the Summer Reading Challenge, which challenges children to read 6 books during the summer holidays.

It has been proven that children who don’t continue reading during the summer have a lower reading age when they return to school in September than that before the summer.

You can find out more about the challenge on the webpage: or on the facebook page:

The challenge starts on the 10th July and runs until September, when children return to school.
