Summer Reading Challenge

At Paxton, we love nothing more than to curl up and lose ourselves in the pages of a good book. To ensure that the children do not run out of opportunities to read over the Summer, we are championing the Summer Reading Challenge.

Organised by the charity The Reading Agency and the UK public library network since 1999, the Summer Reading Challenge is the UK’s biggest annual reading promotion for children aged 4 to 11.

The Challenge combines FREE access to books with fun, creative activities during the summer holidays. Throughout the Challenge, library staff and volunteers support the children, helping them to discover new authors and illustrators and to explore a wide range of different types of books and ways of reading. 

On Wednesday 6th July, we look forward to welcoming Paulette Johnson, from Croydon Library Services to Paxton to talk to the children in more detail and answer any questions they may have about the Summer Reading Challenge.
