Summer Reading Challenge

Home » Newsroom » Summer Reading Challenge

There are lots of activities and fun available in Cheshire West libraries this Summer and it's all free! Just visit your local branch from Saturday 13 July onwards in order to take part.
All you have to do is read 6 books over the summer and collect rewards along the way including bookmarks, glasses and window stickers.

This year's Summer Reading Challenge takes place in space, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing.

The Rockets are a futuristic family living in space and they are hot on the trail of a mischievous band of aliens! The aliens have been jumping from galaxy to galaxy, helping themselves to whatever they like. Now books have mysteriously started to vanish from the Moon Library and the Rockets are on the case. With lots of help from you, the Rockets will go on a mission to try and find the missing books and introduce the aliens to the wonders of the library.

There's plenty of peril along the way, from black holes and shooting stars to the murky depths of the alien ship. Let the Space Chase begin!

If you manage to find all the books and complete the mission there's also a certificate and medal to collect, given out at a special award ceremony.
