We're looking for volunteers to help run Summer Reading Challenge 2015.

Find out more.

The Summer Reading Challenge takes place during the school holidays every summer at a library near you.

The challenge, aimed at 4 to 11 year olds, is to read 6 or more books over the summer.

The challenge will be taking place again this summer. The theme will be Record Breakers.

Summer Reading Challenge 2014

The 2014 Summer Reading Challenge ran from 12 July to 7 September.

The theme was Mythical Maze. Children were challenged to find their way around a labyrinth that introduced them to fantastical creatures from the world of legend and mythology.

In 2014, 9,611 children registered to take part in the challenge, with 5,239 completing it.

Created and coordinated by the Reading Agency, the Summer Reading Challenge focuses on reading for pleasure for children across the UK. Research has shown that children who take part go back to school with improved reading skills and a boost to their confidence.
