WHAT'SONINBURY SummerReadingChallenge

Summer Reading Challenge 2019

Bury libraries are calling for children to sign up to read six books this Summer as part of Space Chase, Summer Reading Challenge 2019.

What Is The Summer Reading Challenge?

The Summer Reading Challenge asks 4-11 year olds to borrow, and read, any six library books over the Summer.  The theme for 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.

How To Take Part

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.

When Does It Start?

Space Chase launches in library across Bury on 13th July and run until 7th September.


There are fun events over the Summer to celebrate the Summer Reading Challenge, including:-

  • Ramsbottom Library on 31st July
  • Bury Library on 13th August
  • Prestwich Library on 14th August
  • Radcliffe Library on 21st August

All children who complete the challenge will be entered into a prize draw, and the Bury School with the highest percentage of their pupils completing the challenge will win a visit from Craig Bradley – ‘That Poetry Bloke’ the hilarious performance poet.
