Summer Reading Challenge 2020

The Summer Reading Challenge launches in Hampshire and there are more ways than ever for children to take part in 2020.

The annual Summer Reading Challenge launched in Hampshire’s libraries on Wednesday 1st July and this year there are more ways than ever for children to take part !

The challenge supports the literacy of children aged 4-11 by encouraging children to read (at least) six books over the summer holidays. Every participating child who signs up online at will receive a medal and a certificate, we hope to distribute these rewards through schools in the autumn.

There are more ways than ever for children to take part this year:

•           Sign-up online and read the books they have at home, or borrow eBooks and eAudio books from our digital collection – we have lots of choice for kids – look for our ‘Summer Reading Challenge’ bookshelf

•           Sign-up online and use our free Ready Reads, We Select You Collect service to get actual books from the library - for more information check out this page on our website:

•           From Monday 6 July make a short visit to your local library, children who can’t sign-up online can get help to sign-up for the Summer Reading Challenge and family groups can visit together to browse and borrow books.
