Mischievous theme for this year’s Summer Reading Challenge

This year’s Cumbria Libraries Summer Reading Challenge is called ‘Mischief Makers,’ and is inspired by the much-loved children's comic title ‘Beano,’ which celebrates its 80th anniversary this year.

This national activity takes place every year during the summer holidays. Children can sign up now to take part at any library in Cumbria, and then read six library books of their choice to complete the challenge. The challenge runs until Saturday 8 September and it is free to take part. 

As part of the challenge, children will explore a map of Beanotown to find the mysterious buried treasure and become the ultimate mischief makers! Dennis, Gnasher and their friends will help them solve clues and collect stickers, having lots of fun and adventures along the way!

Taking part in the Summer Reading Challenge has been proven to help prevent the ‘dip’ in children’s reading skills that can occur during the summer holidays if they don't have regular access to books and encouragement to read for pleasure.
