Are you ready to enter the Mythical Maze?

Nessy and chums - copyright Sarah McIntyre for The Reading AgencyYes, it’s that time of year again – the school summer holidays are starting and libraries all over the country are stepping up to provide fun and amusement for children at the same time as working to avoid the common ‘reading slump’ that can take place over the long break.

This year’s theme is the Mythical Maze, and there are lots of ways to join in online too – visit the Summer Reading Challenge website for games, book suggestions, writing challenges and videos from authors.

Here in Westminster we’re well known for – and proud of – going completely over the top with events for kids to back up the fun of reading and taking part in the Challenge. There are over 140 events across our libraries this summer – some for the little ones, some for older kids, and some for  all ages. There are themed craft sessions galore, comedy magic shows, puppets, music and dancing, visits from Zoo Lab and more – download the leaflet for your local library below.

The rules are the same as usual:
Medusa - copyright Sarah McIntyre for The Reading AgencySign up at the beginning of the holidays, borrow books, read them, and come in after each couple of books and tell us all about them!
You’ll get stickers along the way and if you read six or more books over the summer you get a medal :-).

So, don’t delay – come along to the library and enter the Mythical Maze Summer Reading Challenge!
