Summer Reading Challenge

Young readers can join a team of Mischief Makers for a tour around Beanotown as this year's Summer Reading Challenge gets underway.

Saturday, 28th July 2018, 8:00 am

East Sussex libraries are calling on children aged four to 11 to sign up to read six books over the summer. Those taking part will earn stickers – some emitting a mysterious smell - which will lead them to buried treasure.

This year’s challenge is inspired by the much-loved children’s title Beano, which celebrates its 80th anniversary, and features Dennis and Gnasher.

Children signing up for the challenge will be given a colourful collector’s map of Beanotown to keep a record of their Summer Reading Challenge journey. They will need to read a total of six books by Saturday, September 8, to complete the challenge, and this can include ebooks, audio books, picture books and puzzle books.

Book a place at Eastbourne Library on Saturday (July 28) between 2.30pm and 4pm.
