Animal Agents summer reading challenge

SRCThe children's summer reading challenge starts on Saturday 1 July and this year there's something fishy going on at the library. The Animal Agents need children to help them crack the case! Children are invited to visit the library four times over the holidays and read any six books to complete the challenge by Saturday 9 September. They will collect stickers and clues along the way, and everyone who completes the challenge will receive a medal and certificate. Pop into your library to sign up and look out for special events over the summer.
