The Summer Reading Challenge is delivered by libraries and produced by The Reading Agency. It is open to all children (including the under threes), free of charge. In 2018 a partnership with the Beano is giving this year’s challenge a comic twist!

The Challenge runs from 14 July to 1 September 2018 in all Essex libraries and mobile libraries. For more information visit the Essex Libraries Summer Reading Challenge 2018 web page.
