Thousands sign up for summer reading scheme

Post by Wirral Council News » Wed Oct 31, 2018 11:59 am

This year's Summer Reading Challenge was a big success, with more than 4,000 children taking part, borrowing nearly 74,000 books between July and September!

The summer holidays also saw Wirral libraries packed with visitors to the more than 100 events they staged this year – from puppet shows to Chester Zoo ranger talks, an Animals Take Over, Road Safety storytime, and craft sessions.

Children delighted in the Mischief Maker’s book chal­lenge which saw them receive stickers each time they read a book; adding them to their ‘Beanotown’ map to solve clues and discover hidden treasure.

Each child was awarded with a certificate for taking part and more than 2,000 chil­dren will now receive a medal for completing the challenge and making six or more library visits this summer.

Libraries also welcomed 500 pre-schoolers to the Mini Challenge, who collected stickers and were also presented with certificates, as well as 385 new young members - making Wirral a hive of mini bookworms ready for their next reading challenge!

In order of favourites, here’s a list of our challengers best reads this year

Sue Hendra and Paul Lin­net: Veggies in the Valley of Doom
David Walliams: The World’s Worst Children
