Summer Reading Challenge

The Summer Reading Challenge 2017 is now finished. 

The Summer Reading challenges runs in libraries every year. Children aged 4-11 can collect stickers, fun giveaways and a certificate by reading library books over the summer holiday.


Complete the Challenge by reading six library books over the summer holidays, and receive a certificate.

Sign up and get a free collector folder to keep your special stickers. 

Collect all six stickers and special giveaways as you read. It’s fun and, best of all, it’s totally FREE.

The challenge is suitable for ages 4-11, but younger siblings can take part in our mini-challenge and collect stickers for books shared at home.

The Summer Reading Challenge website is now live all year round. You can find out about great books you might want to read, play games and more!

Last year, more than 2000 children across Peterborough took part in the Reading Challenge.
