Summer reading challenge

 Silly Squad - Summer reading challenge 2020

This year's Summer Reading Challenge is online.

The theme is Silly Squad and it’s all about funny books, books to make you laugh and smile.

The Silly Squad is a group of animal friends who go on adventures and who love reading funny books.

Families can join the Silly Squad on a new adventure by signing up on the website, setting your own target of books to read, playing games and earning points and unlocking badges as you progress through the Challenge. At the end you can download and print your own certificate.

The animal characters have been designed by author and illustrator Laura Ellen Anderson, the creator of Amelia Fang and Evil Emperor Penguin.

For those families who do not have access to the internet you can still do the challenge at home by ordering some books to collect from your local Staffordshire Library when it opens. Phone us on 0300 111 8000 to place your order and find out when your library opens.  When your books are ready for collection a member of library staff will telephone you.

We will give you a certificate to say that you are taking part in this year’s Summer Reading Challenge and a sheet of fun activities to do at home so that you do not miss out on the fun and games online.

Look out for our Summer Reading Challenge fun on Staffordshire Libraries social media, we’ll be sharing lots online to keep you entertained all Summer.
