Summer Reading Challenge launched for children in Dundee

Leisure & Culture Dundee Libraries have launched their Holiday Here summer reading challenge to encourage children to read through the holidays.

For the first time, this year's Reading Challenge has a local 'Holiday Here' theme. The challenge is for children aged 5-12 years, starts 30 June and runs for the whole summer holidays.

Children can join for free in any Dundee library and collect a 'Holiday Here' activity map, bookmark and sticker.

There will be two parts to the challenge. The first part is to read six books over the holidays and fill in the library cards on your Dundee map. These can be any books you like - novels, fact books, e-books or audiobooks.

The second part is to visit as many of the 14 Dundee public libraries as possible and get a stamp on your map at each one.

There will be prizes along the way and a special 'Holiday Here' certificate when they complete the challenge.

Helen Dolan, Library & Information Officer at Leisure & Culture Dundee, said


"All the family can get involved with 'Holiday Here', explore different libraries, share stories and participate in the events and activities running in the libraries throughout the summer. It's a great chance to see what's on offer in Dundee Libraries. The library team is always on hand to help you join, choose books or anything else you need."
