Youngsters are being encouraged to get up to all kinds of mischief…by taking part in this year’s Summer Reading Challenge.
The theme of this year’s Tesco Bank-sponsored Summer Reading Challenge is Mischief Makers and features characters, Dennis the Menace, Gnasher and their friends from the Beano comic.
Renfrewshire Libraries are encouraging youngsters to pay them a visit and take part in the Summer Reading Challenge by borrowing and reading six books of their choice and be given stickers and rewards the more books they read.
Local author, Lindsay Littleson was at Paisley’s Central Library to encourage kids to take part and tell them about her latest book, A Pattern of Secrets.
It’s free to take part in the Summer Reading Challenge and youngsters can also take part in a hunt for buried treasure by exploring their map of Beanotown.
Youngsters who complete the Summer Reading Challenge will also be entered into a prize draw to win cinema tickets. All of Renfrewshire Leisure’s 12 libraries and its Skoobmobile each have a pair of tickets to the movies as prizes, which have been donated by Paisley-based facilities maintenance company, Consilium Contracting Services.
Chairperson of Renfrewshire Leisure’s board of trustees, Councillor Lisa-Marie Hughes said: “The Summer Reading Challenge is an exciting way to encourage young people to read books.
“I hope parents and carers will encourage children to pay their local library a visit and as well as borrowing books they want to read, they can have some fun as well.”
