Get ready for the 2015 Library Summer Reading Challenge!

The Tesco Bank Summer Reading Challenge Scotland takes place in all City Libraries again this year with the exciting new theme of Record Breakers and runs from Friday 3 July until Saturday 22 August.

The Challenge, aimed at children aged 4-12, encourages children to read up to six books from their local library over the summer holidays.  Any library book can be read – from picture books to audio books – and children will receive stickers and rewards throughout the Challenge.

This year’s ‘Record Breakers’ theme and the collaboration with Guinness World Records brings together fact and fiction and challenges readers to explore real-life achievements and world records. As part of the Challenge there is also a world record attempt for the greatest number of people making a reading pledge throughout the UK. Pledges will be collected at Aberdeen Central Library on Saturday 11 July from 11am – 3pm. Children and adults can come along to give their pledge and be part of this world record attempt!

For more fun and activities, why not check out the Summer Reading Challenge website where children can also create a personal reading profile and add books they’ve read to the Book Sorter.

Fun, free events will take place in libraries throughout the holidays for children taking part in the Challenge.
