How the Challenge works

How the Challenge works

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.
  • Check our Summer Reading Challenge quick guide 
  • See Summer Reading Challenge terms and conditions


Wild World Hero rewards

Each child earns a poster, special stickers and other goodies as they work through the Challenge. There are stickers with codes to unlock digital rewards on the Summer Reading Challenge website and an exclusive pencil and fortune teller game to collect.

On completion there are three very special rewards:

Medal and Certificate

Children collect a medal and certificate when they finish.

Free Blair Drummond entry
There’s one free entry to Blair Drummond for the young person who finishes the Challenge. Due to Covid restrictions, you must book your visit in advance or you will not be permitted to enter.

Once all 6 books have been read and entered onto the Wild World Heroes core pack, the pack will be stamped by your library. You can then go ahead and book.

How to book your Blair Drummond entry

You must book in advance and children must be accompanied by an adult.

  • Visit https://www.blairdrummond.com/visiting-us/ and choose the date and time you wish to visit
  • For free entry for the child who participated in the Challenge,
    select the pre-paid/complimentary
  • You can also book paid-for places for the other people in your party who are visiting at the same time. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

On the day of your visit:

  • Have your ticket printed out or the PDF of your ticket available on your phone.
  • Remember the Wild World Heroes core pack – this needs to be shown at entry too.

You can claim free entry until  Blair Drummond closes for the 2021 season.
