This summer, children can visit their local library in Denbighshire to join a superstar team and their marvellous mascots and get involved in a Summer Reading Challenge (external website) themed around the power of play, sport, games and physical activity. The challenge is called ‘Ready, Steady, Read!’ and is free to join and take part for all children.
Through taking part in the Challenge, by accessing the free bilingual materials from the library and online via the Challenge website, children will be encouraged to keep their minds and bodies active over the summer break. The characters – brought to life by children’s author and illustrator Loretta Schauer – navigate a fictional summer obstacle course and track their reading as they go, rewarded by free incentives including stickers.
By participating in the challenge at their local library, young people will have the opportunity to explore new reading material, develop skills, and discover new interests.
There will also be games and craft activities available in libraries during the school holidays, with more details to be found on Denbighshire Libraries’ social media channels.
