Summer Reading Challenge

Children, aged 4-11, can sign up for Silly Squad the 2020 Summer Reading Challenge from today! It’s a great way to keep track of your reading over the summer months as well as finding out about new authors and getting lots of reading inspiration. Just visit to sign up.

You can read books that you already have at home but if you fancy trying something new we have e-books and e-audiobooks for children available to borrow for free. Check out Overdrive for e-books and BorrowBox, RBdigital and Overdrive for e-audiobooks

Here’s a very helpful video from Adam of Norfolk Libraries that shows parents exactly what to do to sign up their child.  Once completed, a child can collect badges, find out their silly name or choose another, and have some fun with books.
