Libraries gear up for summer fun

June 25 2018

Libraries across the UK are getting ready to launch Mischief Makers the Summer Reading Challenge™, run by independent charity The Reading Agency.

For 2018 the theme is Mischief Makers, celebrating the 80th anniversary of the much-loved comic Beano. Mischief Makers will celebrate adventure, friendship, reading and fun and is a must for all children who want to live in the moment and be themselves. 

Across the school summer holidays, Mischief Makers will introduce young readers to a variety of Beano characters, in an exciting reading challenge through Beano Town!

Each year the Summer Reading Challenge to children is simple. They’re encouraged to read six or more library books of their choice – fact books, joke books, picture books, audio books just as long as they are borrowed from the library – during the holidays. There are smelly stickers to collect, plus a certificate & medal for every child who completes the Challenge! Children can sign up at Bishopston library from mid-July onwards and all materials are absolutely free!
