Gadgeteers Summer Reading Challenge 2022 coming to a library near you this June!

22nd Jun 2022

Libraries NI is asking all primary schools to encourage parents to sign their children up to this year’s Summer Reading Challenge.

Children’s reading can ‘dip’ during the long summer holidays if they do not have regular access to books and encouragement to read for pleasure.  To help prevent this, children aged 4–11 are invited to join the 'Gadgeteers Summer Reading Challenge 2022' for a very special science-themed Challenge that will inspire children to use their imagination and creativity!

In partnership with Science Museum Group, the Challenge will take place from 25th June until 3rd September in all public and mobile libraries across Northern Ireland.   

Get involved

Children are encouraged to spark their curiosity about the world around them by visiting and signing up in their local library from Saturday 25 June, setting their own reading goal and then reading any books they enjoy throughout the summer to collect special stickers and other rewards along the way – all for FREE.

What is happening?

Lots of exciting events and activities will take place throughout the Challenge, both in libraries and online including a digital platform with amazing book recommendations, awesome rewards and plenty of fun ideas too available here! Everyone who completes their personal challenge will receive a certificate and medal.

More information will be available over the coming weeks so keep an eye on Libraries NI social media platforms and
