After announcing all of Wokingham’s libraries reopening following the COVID-19 restrictions easing, Wokingham Borough Council has also introduced some reading activities for children and teenagers.
Wokingham Borough Libraries and The Reading Agency are calling all children in the borough to take part this year’s Summer Reading Challenge. Aimed at 4-to 12-year-olds, the theme focuses on Wild World Heroes and aims to tackle real-life environmental issues, including deforestation and plastic pollution. Developed in partnership with WWF UK, the challenge runs until Saturday 29 August.
Hip hip hooray! ?

To take part, children need to collect a starter pack from their nearest library, where they will be given a collector folder to keep a record of their reading journey. Six or more books must be read to complete the challenge, with fun incentives and rewards on the way.
There is also a Teen Reading Challenge available, for more information visit the website.
