Summer Reading Challenge 2021

The Summer Reading Challenge combines FREE access to books with fun, creative activities during the summer holidays. Throughout the Challenge, library staff and young volunteers support the children, helping them to discover new authors and illustrators and to explore a wide range of different types of books and ways of reading.


How the Challenge works


  • Children sign up through their local library and receive a Wild World Heroes collector poster
  • Children set a reading goal and borrow and read library books of their own choice during the summer, collecting special stickers to complete their poster and extra incentives along the way
  • Library staff and volunteers are on hand to advise and run family-friendly activities
  • Children who complete the Summer Reading Challenge are presented with a certificate and a medal
  • The official Challenge website,, hosts digital rewards, author videos, games and more for children to enjoy all summer
  • Children can also sign up online this year, in a blended offer – they will need assistance from an adult to do this
