Summer Reading Challenge Launch Day
Come and join The Big Friendly Read this summer - it wouldn’t be the same without you!
The Big Friendly Read, Summer Reading Challenge 2016 begins in all South Gloucestershire Libraries on 16 July and runs until 10 September. It’s fun, it’s friendly and best of all, it’s totally FREE.
All children have to do is read six library books over the summer, collecting special Big Friendly Read collector cards from some of Roald Dahl’s best-loved stories along the way, to get their medal and certificate.
More than 6,700 children took part in Record Breakers last summer. A parent of children who did said “My three children loved the reading challenge. I think it is a fantastic idea and gets kids reading through the summer.”
Libraries are also holding free activities throughout the holiday to help children complete the challenge.
Visit your local library or log on to www.southglos.gov.uk/libraries to find out more.
