Clare County Library - Children’s Summer Reading Scheme 2014


Mythical Maze 1

Summer Reading Challenge 2014 – Mythical Maze

The Summer Reading Challenge is the biggest annual reading promotion for four to eleven-year olds; it’s free, it’s fun and it’s run by your local library!

Last year, almost 1,000 children in County Clare participated in the Summer Reading Challenge. The initiative is an excellent way for libraries and schools to work together to prevent the 'summer reading dip' that can occur when schools close for summer holidays.

Children simply need to visit their local library, sign up for this year’s Challenge, Mythical Maze, and library staff will help from there. As participants read up to a total of 6 books or more if they wish, they will collect stickers, bookmarks, wristbands and other incentives along the way.

There will be a celebration ceremony for all children who complete the Challenge in one of Clare’s five main regional libraries in the Autumn featuring children’s entertainment and some excellent spot prizes, with the emphasis on reading for pleasure providing the backdrop to all activities.

The Summer Reading Challenge is free and fun. It is designed to have maximum child appeal and is highly motivating. It is not a competition but a personal challenge within a particular time frame which offers reading inspiration and incentives to encourage children into libraries. Clare County Library invites all young readers to become involved. You will find additional resources on The Reading Agency’s website:
