Summer reading event

Children aged four to 11 are being invited to take part in the 2013 Summer Reading Challenge taking place in all Northumberland libraries.

The challenge encourages reading through the summer holidays, rewarding those who complete it with a certificate, medal and entry into a prize draw to win a bike.

This year’s theme is ‘Creepy House’, with children getting a colourful starter pack to keep track of their reading as well as collecting incentives and rewards along the way.
