Story Lab, the summer reading scheme.

Remember hearing about the summary library scheme, Story Lab?

Here are the details that explain the summer reading challenge, for the children to join the library or to visit the library and read at least 6 books over the summer. There’s lots of stickers, bookmarks and wristbands to collect as they revisit the library throughout the summer weeks.
Please let me know when you have joined Story Lab and what books you have enjoyed reading, I would love to hear from you over the summer, by posting a comment.

The summer reading challenge is a national scheme to encourage
primary age children to continue to read throughout the summer
holidays. The theme this year is Story Lab and is part of the Cultural

All our libraries will be involved in the summer reading challenge.
Every child who joins “Story Lab” will receive a Story Lab five-sided
hi-tech HQ on which to record details of books read during the
summer. There are also lots of stickers, bookmarks, door hangers,
wristbands and yo-yos to collect.

Every child who reads at least six books will receive a certificate and
their very own Olympic style medal. Fantastic to take back to school in September to impress your teachers!

Story Lab provides the opportunity to have lots of Olympic fun and all our libraries will have activities relating to the Olympics as well as stories and adventures from around the world.
