Children Get Set For Mysterious Summer At The Library

Libraries across the Dumfries and Galloway are getting ready for children to explore some mysterious goings on at their local library as part of the Tesco Bank Summer Reading Challenge Scotland 2017.
From solving the case of the graffiti writing to the strange case of a missing lunch, children will join in the fun with the Animal Agents by reading along. As children read library books on the Summer Reading Challenge, they will receive a host of stickers, some with mysterious smells. By collecting these clues in their detective folder, young readers will help the Animal Agents find out what’s really been going on behind the scenes
During the summer holidays children are encouraged to borrow and read six books from their local library in return for goodies such as zip tags, door hangers, wristbands and fold up games. Every child who completes the challenge will be given a certificate and medal.
To complete the challenge children have to collect stickers on the special fold-out poster as they solve cases: Writing on the Wall, Café Crime, and Caught Red-handed.
Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Communities Committee Chairman, Councillor Andy Ferguson says;
“This is a great way of encouraging children to read over the summer holidays. It’s always very popular and encourages children and their families to visit our libraries.”
Children aged 0-4 can take part in the Early Years Challenge.
There are lots of activities planned in libraries over the summer from Zoolab and storytimes to Jack and Lily craft sessions – see our website for a full list of whats on – HERE
Just pop down to your local library from today to register for free. All local libraries and mobile libraries will be inviting their young readers to take part in Animal Agents, Tesco Bank Summer Reading Challenge Scotland, which is presented by The Reading Agency, in partnership with Tesco Bank. It’s all free and it’s fun, which is great news for parents!
