Summer Reading Challenge 2014 – Mythical Maze


Encourage your child to keep reading this summer by signing them up for this year’s ‘Mythical Maze’ themed adventure. Children aged four to eleven will be challenged to find their way around a labyrinth that introduces them to fantastical creatures from the world of legend and mythology, collecting stickers of characters such as dragons, unicorns and yetis along the way.


The Summer Reading Challenge takes place every year during the summer holidays. You can sign up at your local library, and read six library books of your choice, collecting stickers and other rewards along the way - all for FREE.

There is a certificate and a medal for those who complete the challenge
