Summer Reading Challenge 2019: Space Chase at Inspire libraries 13 July  - 8 September


The Summer Reading Challenge is back in Inspire libraries from Saturday 13 July.  Produced by The Reading Agency and run in libraries across the country the Summer Reading Challenge is a brilliant way to maintain children’s reading enthusiasm throughout the summer break.   

This year children help futuristic family, The Rockets, on an intergalactic adventure to retrieve missing library books. 

Children sign up at the library to pick up their collectors folder, then read six library books, collecting rewards (including very stinky stickers) along the way to complete their mission.  Children choose the books they want to read on their Challenge; novels, fact books, joke books – as long as they are library books all reading counts!

Space Chase is running in all Inspire libraries until Sunday 8 September.   For children aged 4 – 11. 

Throughout the summer library staff and volunteers will be on hand to talk to children about the books they have read.   Find out more about the Summer Reading Challenge at
