Every year Northamptonshire Libraries delivers the Summer Reading Challenge, which challenges children to read six books during the summer holidays. It has been proven that children who don’t continue reading during the summer have a lower reading age when they return to school in September than before the summer.
Due to the exceptional circumstances surrounding Covid-19 we are unable to deliver this in the normal way and the challenge will be online this year.
