Summer Reading Challenge 2017 – Animal Agents

Be a super sleuth this summer and sign up to the Tesco Bank Summer Reading Challenge Scotland. Suitable for children aged 4 to 11 years, the challenge is to read 6 library books over the summer holidays. As you read, you’ll use your wits and power of observation to sift through the vital clues and crack the case.

Join up at any Perth and Kinross library from Saturday 24th June. You will receive a challenge pack with stickers and rewards to collect along the way and a certificate and gold medal for those that complete.

You can also connect to the Summer Reading Challenge website animal-agents.org.uk where you can read, share, create and take part in interactive games.

Summer programme of events and activities for children in Perth and Kinross Libraries.

Please note, unless otherwise stated, events are for primary school aged children from 4-11 years. Children under 8 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.  Children must be registered for the Summer Reading Challenge 2017 to attend events
