Summer Reading Challenge 2024, delivered in partnership with libraries. "Marvellous Makers". Logo for The Reading Agency.

With free rewards to collect and plenty of brilliant books to enjoy, the Challenge is the perfect summer activity to keep young minds and bodies active over the holidays.

Everything you need to know!

Marvellous Makers will launch in all our libraries on Saturday 6 July 2024 and run until Saturday 31 August 2024.

It is open to all children, completely free of charge. Simply visit your local library to get started. This year you can challenge yourself and set your own goals for reading, or you can stick with the standard six books – it is entirely up to you! 

What books do we need to read? 

Children can read any book of their choice; fiction, non-fiction, picture books, or books they share with parents and carers, they can also listen to audiobooks, they all count! Very young children can pick up a special prize when they have completed their challenge too.
