Summer Reading Challenge 2019

Back to News Index

Running in all North Yorkshire libraries from 13th July, the Summer Reading Challenge 2019 is organised by The Reading Agency charity and aimed at children aged 4 to 11.


This year's theme is ‘Space Chase’ as it is the 50th anniversary of the first moon landings.

The challenge is to read six library books over the summer holidays. As they read their chosen books, children will receive stickers and incentives. Children who complete the challenge will be awarded a medal and a certificate to celebrate their achievement.

To take part in the challenge, children just need to sign up at Great Ayton Discovery Centre as members and they will be given a colourful collector’s map of Beanotown to keep a record of their summer reading challenge journey.

Please contact the Great Ayton Discovery Centre on 01642 723268 for further information or just drop-in.

If you can't make it to Great Ayton, there are many other events for children being held in Bedale, Easingwold, Northallerton, Stokesley and Thirsk libraries.
