The annual challenge for primary-aged children will be taking place this year as normal, but can be completed digitally. We will also be getting in several copies of the books that are promoted through the challenge, so we can offer a click and collect delivery service if you would prefer hard copies of books.
The theme this year is “The Silly Squad”, see the national website here for more information: https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk
Children will need to create a free account to take part in the digital challenge – this sign up is simple but requires approval by an adult (via email). This two-step authentication process for children under the age of 16 is required by law.
Obviously, as libraries are still closed, children are allowed to read their own books/comics this year but we have lots of lovely new junior eBooks and eAudiobooks available. Check out this link to see which books are available digitally: https://northyorks.overdrive.com/library/junior
Nidd Plus is awarding our own certificates and medals this year to all children who complete the challenge!
