As summer is on the horizon, it is time to launch our annual summer reading challenge: Are you ready for a marvellous, splendiferous and mischievous reading challenge at your local library this summer?

From July 16th to September 17th children across Oxfordshire can celebrate 100 years of the world’s greatest storyteller Roald Dahl with The Big Friendly Read, Summer Reading Challenge 2016.

Children will be encouraged to read at least six library books of their choice over the summer holidays.  There will be six stupendous Quentin Blake illustrated cards to collect – some are even smelly!  Complete the challenge and they’ll get their own medal and certificate.

Join up at your library.  It’s fun!  It’s free!  It’s local!

Look out for fantastic new books and fantabulous activities at the library throughout the summer holidays. There’s a website (www.bigfriendlyread.org.uk) and an App to add to the fun too!

(Pssst… there is also a reading challenge for adults, A Midsummer Night’s Read.)
