The Summer Reading Challenge takes place every year during the summer holidays. Sign up at your local BCP council library, and then read six library books of your choice to complete the challenge. ​​​​There are exclusive rewards to collect along the way, and it’s free.

We are very excited that for 2021 the theme of the Summer Reading Challenge is Wild World Heroes, arriving online and in your local library this summer. 

We’re teaming up with WWF for a very special nature-themed Challenge that will inspire you to stand up for the planet! Join the Wild World Heroes and discover how you can make a difference to the environment too. 

Keep an eye on this page to find out how you can get involved!
