Silly Squad 2020, Summer Reading Challenge is LIVE NOW!!!

Join the fun and Let’s Get Silly!

 

This year’s Summer Reading Challenge theme is ‘Silly Squad’ and for 2020 it’s all about funny books, happiness and having a laugh.

The Silly Squad is a team of animal friends who love to go on adventures and get stuck in to all different kinds of funny books. This year’s challenge features extra special characters designed by the award winning author and illustrator Laura Ellen Anderson.

Children can take part in the challenge this year by joining the Silly Squad online at https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/  – a platform developed and hosted by The Reading Agency. Children can set their own personal reading challenge goals to complete this summer. The platform will keep track of books read, book reviews and rewards that each child unlocks along the way.

You can read anything that makes you happy – whether it be comics, joke books, poetry, fiction or non-fiction; in digital or print format; from e-book lending through our Borrowbox service or from what you already have at home. You can find out more about Borrowbox here https://bit.ly/BorrowBoxInfo or can request a pin reset here https://bit.ly/InverclydeLibrariesResetPIN. If you’re not already a member of Inverclyde Libraries it’s quick and easy to join online here https://bit.ly/JoinOurLibrary

We know you all LOVE the Summer Reading Challenge so Inverclyde Libraries have a fun-packed summer of Silly Stories, Crafternoon fun and Online bonkers Bookbug Sessions for the whole family to enjoy! We’ll keep you updated with all of the Silly activity as it’s revealed! Simply email src@inverclyde.gov.uk to register for updates on activities and to find out how you can become part of our Inverclyde Silly Squad!
