How you can enjoy spending time at the library this Summer

There are so many ways that your children can enjoy the library. A library gives children the opportunity to unlock their imaginations with a huge range of books to discover.

This Summer, West Sussex County Council have set a new, exciting challenge for children to take part in. Children will be challenged to solve a mystery with the ‘Animal Agents’ gang. With a choice of 4 suspects, children will be challenged to put their detective caps on, solve the clues and work out the crime.

The Summer reading challenge begins on 15th July 2017 and is completely free for families to participate in. Children will be required to read a series of 6 books as well as taking part in a interactive activities in order to be able to solve the crime. At the end, they will be rewarded with a medal and a certificate of their very own so they can show off their achievement.

The Summer reading challenge is an ideal event for young children over the Summer holidays. With children broken up from school, it is important to keep their brains active and this event gives them the perfect opportunity to do that.

The summer reading challenge is available at a selection of West Sussex libraries. The case closes on the 16th September 2017, so make sure you have solved the crime in time!

This challenge is open to all and children of all ages are able to take part. Toddlers can get involved with the ‘mini challenge’, collecting stickers as they share library books. Toddlers will be awarded with a special gold medal certificate and certificate to show off their achievements. Parents are also feel encouraged to join in. Make an example to your children and choose a book to read alongside your children.

So, if you are stuck for things to do over the Summer holidays, why not go to the library to discover a huge range of books and fun challenges to take part in.

Good luck with solving the crime!
