The Reading Agency is excited to announce the theme for this year’s Summer Reading ChallengeMarvellous Makers! Developed in partnership with Create, a leading charity bringing the creative arts to those who need it most, this year’s Challenge aims to fire up children’s imaginations and unleash storytelling and creativity through the power of reading.  

Marvellous Makers will be arriving in your local library and online this summer…

The Summer Reading Challenge is taking place at all libraries in Oldham and Gallery Oldham from Saturday 13 July until Saturday 7 September.

The challenge, aimed at children aged 4 to 11 years, is to read six or more library books over the summer or to challenge your own personal reading goal.

There will be rewards to collect and children who complete the challenge receive a medal and a certificate. Children taking part online earn digital badges and other online rewards with a certificate to download at the end of the challenge.
