Sign up for the Wild World Heroes Summer Reading Challenge 2021 at your local library.
Please bear in mind that library life is a little different at the moment. Due to Covid our opening times are reduced and we’re limiting how much time people can spend in the library.
See our Libraries are back page for more information about what to expect during your visit.
How does the Summer Reading Challenge work?
- Primary age children (ages 4-12)
- Starts Saturday 19 June, ends Saturday 21 August.
- You need to be a library member, but you can join when you visit the library to sign up for the Challenge.
- Read 6 books over at least 3 visits to your local library
- Register by Saturday 7th August to give your family time to finish.
- Young people get to choose the kind of books they like from the library: stories, comics, fact books, joke books, picture books or audiobooks!
- You can only do the Challenge once across the Falkirk Libraries area, but we do hope you’ll keep reading, even if you finish quickly.
