Summer Reading Challenge

The Reading Agency and Norfolk Library and Information Service present the 2018 Summer Reading Challenge, Mischief Makers.  Children can come and  explore a map of Beanotown to find the mysterious buried treasure and become ultimate mischief makers! Dennis, Gnasher and friends will help them solve clues and collect stickers, having lots of fun and adventures along the way!

You could join the Mischief Makers this summer at your local library and mobile library.

Everyone who signs up receives a collector folder to get started off. As they read library books over the summer, they explore Beantown and follow the clues, as well as picking up some stinky stickers along the way.

Mischief Makers, Summer Reading Challenge 2018 was produced by the Reading Agency and delivered by libraries.  Find out more on The Reading Agency website.

The Summer Reading Challenge website is open all year round for reading ideas, games, competitions.
