Library Challenge

Lichfield Library visited school today to launch their Summer Reading Challenge. Details can be found below.

All children need to do is read 6 books over the holidays. All certificates should be brought into school in September for an additional prize.

Staffordshire libraries are calling for children to sign up to read six books this summer as part of Space Chase, Summer Reading Challenge 2019.

The Summer Reading Challenge asks 4-11 year olds to borrow and read any six library books over the summer. The theme for the 2019 Summer Reading Challenge is Space Chase, inspired by the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.

Children will team up with futuristic family The Rockets for an exciting space mission as they track down books nabbed by a mischievous band of aliens. As children read library books for the Summer Reading Challenge, they will receive special stickers, some with mysterious smells. By adding these stickers to their collectable mission folders, young readers will help the Rockets solve clues, dodge asteroids and discover the missing books, having lots of fun and adventures along the way.

To take part in Space Chase, all children need to do is sign up at their nearest library, where they will be given a FREE collector folder to keep a record of their Summer Reading Challenge journey.

Space Chase launches in libraries across Staffordshire Libraries on Saturday 13 July and runs until 9th September 2019.

There’s a whole programme of events and activities planned at Staffordshire libraries for families over the summer to celebrate the Summer Reading Challenge, including events at Lichfield Library including finding out about animals in space with Zoolab, Space ice cream with the Fizz Pop Science Co. and a Space camp.  For more details pop into the library for a leaflet or see our events page
