Silly Squad, Summer Reading Challenge 2020

17th Jun 2020

Please see below correspondence from Libraries NI...


Libraries NI is delighted to announce details of ‘Silly Squad’, Summer Reading Challenge 2020 produced by

The Reading Agency and delivered by libraries which will take place from Monday 15 June.

The Silly Squad, Summer Reading Challenge, is a free, exciting way to keep

young people aged 4 - 11 years reading during the summer months.

Silly Squad is a celebration of funny books, happiness and laughter. This year the Challenge will be delivered through a fun, immersive and safe online platform. The aim is to encourage children to challenge themselves to read any number of books which makes them happy, in digital or print format, an eBook borrowed from the Libraries NI online catalogue or books they already have at home. Children can sign up for free here.

Throughout the summer there will be online activities, videos, quizzes, games and rewards to unlock along the way. Every child who completes their own Challenge will receive a downloadable certificate.

 Libraries NI offers a wide range of online reading material for children to enjoy with eBooks and audiobooks available to download and read. During lockdown we have seen a very significant increase in the use of these services particularly for children’s books. We also hope that libraries will reopen during the summer to allow families further access to books.
