The Digital Summer Reading Challenge is coming soon!

Cheshire East Libraries are excited to be taking part in this year’s all-new digital Summer Reading Challenge which is organised by The Reading Agency.

Although our library buildings are closed, we will be delivering the Challenge through our virtual services and e-lending platforms.

The theme this year is ‘Silly Squad’ which will offer families a chance to have fun and encourages children to read anything that makes them happy.

The countdown will begin on Monday 1st June culminating in the virtual launch of the Silly Squad Summer Reading Challenge website on Friday 5th June. The Challenge will run throughout the summer until September and children can take part for free.

Please look out for more information coming soon including posts on Twitter @CECLibraries and on each Cheshire East Library Facebook page. @PoyntonLibrary. Here you can also find lots of interesting items and activities for both adults and children such as online Rhymetimes and Storytimes, book reviews, Lego challenges, STEM and craft activities and much more.
