Summer Reading Challenge

We are very excited about this year’s Animal Agents themed Summer Reading Challenge 2017 at Milton Keynes Libraries.

Can you read books, collect the stickers and crack the case for the Animal Agents?

Animal Agents

Animal Agents is this year’s Summer Reading Challenge produced by The Reading Agency and delivered by libraries all over the UK. Milton Keynes Libraries are inviting children of all ages to take part once again this year.

Children’s reading can “dip” during the summer holidays. The Reading Agency’s Annual Summer Reading Challenge helps by getting nearly one million children into libraries (around 3,000 in Milton Keynes last year) to maintain reading skills and confidence.

Because everything changes when we read.

Animal Agents Books

We want as many children as possible to read or have help reading six library books over the summer holidays. Along the way there are stickers (watch out some of them are stinky!) and a bookmark to collect plus a certificate and medal for completing the challenge (while stocks last). 

Animal Agent Suspects

Last year we had nearly 3000 children participating in the Reading Challenge and would love to see even more children taking part this year and we’d especially like to see more completing the challenge – particularly with the Animal Agents case to crack and reading a sixth book means finding out who did it!

Animal Agents is FREE to join and simple to sign up for just come into any Milton Keynes Library* during staffed hours. The Challenge begins Friday 21 July and ends Saturday 9 September.

Top Secret Stamp

With thousands of great books waiting to be read at the local library there is no excuse for boredom during the long summer break.

*Bletchley Library is closed for refurbishment at the moment but please come along to the Mobile Library on Wednesdays 10am-4.30pm at Stanier Square or any other Milton Keynes Library to take part.
