Clare County Library - Children’s Summer Reading Scheme 2013


Summer Reading Challenge 2013 – Creepy House

The Summer Reading Challenge gets thousands of children into libraries to keep up their reading skills and confidence during the long holidays.

In collaboration with the British-based Reading Agency, Clare County Library will have a starter pack and lots of incentives to see children through the six book challenge.

The theme for the 2013 Summer Reading Challenge is Creepy House, and all promotional materials are illustrated by award winning children’s author, Chris Riddell.
There's a spine-tingling adventure waiting for children when they take part in this summer’s challenge. They can join in the adventurers as they explore the Creepy House, simply by reading six books from the library. They can discover the secrets of Creepy House and meet some of the hair-raising residents!
Library staff are confident that Clare’s children are brave enough to explore The Awful Upstairs, The Gruesome Ground Floor and The Spine-tingling Cellar!

The theme ties into publishing trends for books that thrill children without being too scary. It is also a theme which will appeal to a wide age range and to both genders. And if something creepy is not what you’re looking for, you are free to simply choose your favourite reads including, fact books, joke books, picture books, just as long as they are borrowed from the library.
Every time your child finishes a book they get stickers and rewards and there's a certificate for everyone that finishes at a fun entertainment evening for all participants in five main branch libraries in the Autumn.

The Summer Reading Challenge is designed to have maximum child appeal. It is not a competition but a personal challenge within a particular time frame which offers reading inspiration and incentives to encourage children to use their local libraries.
