Visit your local library for an out of this world adventure this summer
Posted on : 29 Jul 2019
Caerphilly Libraries are challenging all children to sign up to read six books this summer as part of Space Chase, the Summer Reading Challenge 2019.
The Summer Reading Challenge asks 4-11 year olds to borrow and read any six library books over the summer holidays. The theme for the 2019 Summer Reading Challenge is Space Chase, inspired by the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.
Children will team up with futuristic family The Rockets for an exciting space mission as they track down books nabbed by a mischievous band of aliens. As children read library books for the Summer Reading Challenge, they will receive special stickers, some with mysterious smells. By adding these stickers to their collectable mission folders, young readers will help the Rockets solve clues, dodge asteroids and discover the missing books, having lots of fun and adventures along the way.
To take part in Space Chase, all children need to do is sign up at their nearest library, where they will be given a collector folder to keep a record of their Summer Reading Challenge journey.
Space Chase launched in libraries across Caerphilly County Borough on 13th July with and runs until 7th September.
Cllr Philippa Marsden, Cabinet Member for Education and Achievement said “There’s a whole programme of events and activities planned at our libraries for families over the summer to celebrate the Summer Reading Challenge. Just contact your local library to find out how to take part. I hope the Space Chase Challenge will inspire all children to use their local library and to read lots of great books throughout the summer and beyond."
