Every year Northamptonshire Libraries deliver the Summer Reading Challenge, which challenges children to read 6 books during the summer holidays. It has been proven that children who don’t continue reading during the summer have a lower reading age when they return to school in September than that before the summer. You can find out more about the challenge at: www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/src or on facebook at: www.facebook.com/NorthamptonshireSRC
The challenge starts on the 10th July and runs until September, when children return to school.
There is also an adult reading challenge this year, called Fully Booked, which will run for 6 months, from the 10th July. Full information about this, and the companion podcast, can be found at www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/fortheloveofbooks
