Silly Squad Summer Reading Challenge

Clackmannanshire - Wednesday 24th June 2020 to Monday 10th August 2020

The Summer Reading Challenge is the biggest children’s reading for pleasure programme in the UK. Last year over 700,000 children and their families took part.

This year we are taking a different approach.

The initiative will be held online and rather than 6 physical books the aim is to encourage children to read whatever makes them happy, get silly and have fun!

Participants earn points and online badges as they progress through the challenge.

To get started parents need to help their children by visiting the Summer Reading Challenge website.

Take part in our Treasure Hunt

In support of the Summer Reading Challenge, Library Services are running an eBooks Treasure Hunt activity.

Based in the main parks in Tullibody, Alloa, Alva Tillicoultry and Menstrie,  children are encouraged to find the 6 hidden books and answer the questions to enter a prize draw which will be held later in the summer.

We hope you will take part by filling in our online Treasure Hunt quiz. Good luck!

The Treasure Hunt winner will receive a £50 Waterstones voucher.

Reading challenge for adults

We also have a reading challenge for adults throughout the summer.
