Summer Reading Challenge at Tarvin Library
The initiative will run in all Cheshire West and Chester libraries from 13th July to 7th
September 2013.
The theme for the 2013 Summer Reading Challenge is Tarvin Library, illustrated by award
winning Chris Riddell (Chris Riddell is a British illustrator and occasional writer of children's books and a political cartoonist for The Observer)

Community Centre

Children can join in the challenge at any time between these dates. This
theme for 2013 has been chosen by the Reading Agency, as it will tie into publishing trends for books that thrill children without being too scary. It is also a theme which will appeal to a wide age range and to both genders.

The Summer Reading Challenge (SRC) gets three quarters of a million children throughout the UK into libraries to keep up their reading skills and confidence during the long holidays.

The SRC is a national initiative led by the Reading Agency (a charitable trust).
The Aims of the Summer Reading Challenge 2013 are:

  • To get more children reading more (Target of 5% increase on completers)
  • To build children's confidence and enthusiasm about reading
  • To build children's and families' use of public libraries and partner services
  • To help children and families benefit from wider cultural experiences
  • To help young people experience rewarding reading and library volunteering activity
  • To reach disadvantaged children and families with a summer reading offer
