Summer Reading Challenge

Prepare for lift off as we travel across the galaxy on a very special reading mission: it’s the Summer Reading Challenge 2019!

Meet the Rockets! This super cool family lives on a satellite station in space. They love spending time at their local library on the Moon.

But wait! All of a sudden books have started to disappear from the Moon Library, and soon there won’t be any left…

A mysterious ship has been spotted on the radar – could these naughty aliens be behind the trouble at the library?

The Rockets are going on a very important mission to save the missing books from these alien bandits, and they need your help!

Take part in the Summer Reading Challenge and join the Rockets on a chase through space to find the aliens and save the Moon Library.

There will be a packed schedule of events across all libraries in Hammersmith & Fulham, so come and join in!

The Summer Reading Challenge is fun, free and designed for all children, whatever their reading ability. Taking part in the challenge helps children to improve their reading skills and confidence during the holidays. Children can ready whatever they like for the challenge — fact books, joke books, picture books, audio books or you can download a book — just as long as they are borrowed from the library.

Join the challenge at your local library! Most will start the challenge on Saturday 13 July.
