GET READING: Summer Reading Challenge for kids makes its comeback to Croxley

 Published on: 1st July 2022   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

The annual Summer Reading Challenge, which takes place throughout the summer holidays, is set to return to Croxley Green Library and others across Hertfordshire.

Beginning on July 9, children of any age are challenged to read six library books of any kind and bring them back to said library and tell them all about it. To get started, children can collect a starter pack from any local library.

Children can read storybooks, picture books, audiobooks, eBooks, information books or just regular books. Reading can also be done independently or with family and friends.

Every child who completes the challenge by September 3 will receive a special medal, pencil and certificate.

Jane Gaskell, manager of Croxley Green Library, said: “It is an extremely popular challenge that has been happening for many years with locals volunteering to help support us due to the number of children coming in to the library.

“Due to COVID-19 this will be the first time in three years that we will be able to fully interact with the children in the area.”

To find out more about the event, you can visit your local library, call the organisers, Hertfordshire County Council, on 0300 12 4049, or email them at
