The Summer Reading Challenge is an immensely popular and successful reading initiative.
It is created and run by the Reading Agency, an independent charity working to inspire more people to read, and to read more, and is supported by children’s publishers.

The Summer Reading Challenge is simple. Children are encouraged to read six books or more of their choice during the holidays with collectable incentives and rewards, plus a certificate for every child who completes the Challenge. 0-3 year olds can also take part in a mini-Summer Reading Challenge.
This year’s Summer Reading Challenge is Mischief Makers, so visit one of Luton’s libraries for pranks galore and a ton of fun this summer!
From Monday 30 July to Sunday 5 August why not bring your favourite joke or prank to your local library and help to compile a brand new joke book.
Or from Monday 13 August to Sunday 19 August visit your library dressed as your favourite Beano character or use their props, take a selfie with the selfie frame and post your pictures on social media.
Plus throughout the duration of the Summer Reading Challenge you can collect special stickers to help find the mysterious buried treasure. Follow clues to explore your very own collector’s map of Beanotown; meeting Dennis, Gnasher and friends along the way.
