Summer Reading Challenge 2019

Space Chase

The Summer Reading Challenge 2019 theme is Space Chase, an out-of-this-world adventure inspired by the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.

Children taking part in the Challenge will join our super space family, The Rockets, for a thrilling mission to track down books nabbed by mischievous aliens!

The Summer Reading Challenge runs from Saturday 13 July to Saturday 14 September. Visit your library and join in the Space Chase!

When you have completed the Summer Reading Challenge you will be entered in our fantastic prize draw. Make sure you finish the challenge by Saturday 14 September to have a chance to win one of the prizes including a Kindle Fire HD and a LEGO Lunar Space Station!
