Summer Reading Challenge

The Summer Reading Challenge has always been a highlight of Wirral Libraries calendar. Each year thousands of children from across the Wirral take part, visiting libraries, reading books and receiving rewards.


Unfortunately, this year, with the closure of libraries, and the measures that will be necessary to provide a safe environment for staff and library visitors on reopening, Wirral Libraries will be unable to run the challenge in the way that they have done in previous years.


However, The Reading Agency have taken the Summer Reading Challenge online. The theme of this year’s challenge is The Silly Squad and is all about funny books, happiness and laughter. The Silly Squad is a team of animals who love to go on adventures, having fun and a few laughs along the way. The characters have been illustrated by the award winning author and illustrator Laura Ellen Anderson.
