Go on a Space Chase this summer!
The 2019 Summer Reading Challenge celebrates two big anniversaries: It marks 20 years since the Challenge began and, even bigger, it's the 50th anniversary of the Moon Landing!
We're counting down to a summer packed with space-themed fun, blasting off on Saturday 15th June, when we'll have a planetarium at Falkirk Library for the day!
Sign up for the Challenge on the day, or at your local library, and get stuck into reading. Finish the Challenge to claim your medal, free swim and free child's entry to Blair Drummond Safari Park!
