Brief listing of regular events by day of week

Summer Reading Challenge:
This year’s Summer Reading Challenge is all about games and sports. Children will join our fictional team (and their animal mascots!) as they use their skills to weave their way through a summer obstacle course. Developed in collaboration with Youth Sport Trust, the 2023 Summer Reading Challenge will celebrate play and participation, encouraging children to engage in games and sports in any way that best suits them. Ready, Set, Read! will showcase how reading can be active and engaged and can itself involve teamwork and community. As you read library books on the Summer Reading Challenge, you will receive a host of stickers, some with smells. When you have read 6 books you’ll be awarded an amazing Ready, Set, Read! medal and your certificate will be sent to your school. The Challenge runs from 1st July to 23rd September 2023.
