The Summer Reading Challenge 2018 was launched in Ceredigion Libraries on Saturday, 14 July and will be running until Saturday, 29 September.

This year’s challenge is called Mischief Makers, inspired by the much-loved children's comic Beano, which celebrates its 80th anniversary.

The Summer Reading Challenge which is open to every primary school age child and takes place every year during the summer holidays. Children can sign up at their local library and will need to read eight library books of their choice to complete the challenge. There are exclusive rewards to collect along the way, and it’s free to take part.

This year, children will 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.

Ray Quant MBE, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Library Services said, “Now that the summer holidays are underway, you may be unsure of how to keep the children busy. What better way than to pop into your nearest library and embark on a fun, free challenge which lasts until the end of September. Also whilst you’re there, why not pick up that must-read summer scorcher for yourself, or find out how to download an e-zine or audiobook? Ceredigion Libraries provide a wide range of services - there really is something of interest for everyone.”
