Summer Reading Challenge 2022

The Summer Reading Challenge (presented by The Reading Agency and funded by Arts Council England) encourages children aged 4 to 11 to set themselves a reading challenge to help prevent the summer reading ‘dip’.


The challenge is to read six or more library books over the summer. There are stickers  for every book read and children who complete the challenge receive a medal and a certificate.

Come along to Puddletown Library, explore our books  and join this free challenge !


Opening times:

Wednesday 3-5pm
Friday 10-12noon

Saturday 10-12noon.
