Children invited to join Mischief Makers at Buckinghamshire Libraries


Buckinghamshire Libraries are excited to announce this year's fantastic Summer Reading Challenge 2018!

The Summer Reading Challenge asks 4-11 year olds to borrow and read any six library books over the summer. The theme for the 2018 Summer Reading Challenge is Mischief Makers, inspired by the much-loved children's title Beano, which celebrates its 80th anniversary. 


Children will explore a map of Beanotown to find a hidden treasure chest full of pranks and become ultimate mischief makers! As children read library books for the Summer Reading Challenge, they will receive special stickers. By adding these stickers to their map, young readers will help Dennis, Gnasher and friends solve clues and discover the treasure, having lots of fun and adventures along the way.

To take part in Mischief Makers, all children need to do is sign up at their nearest library with their library card, and they will be given a colourful collector’s map of Beanotown to keep a record of their Summer Reading Challenge journey. More information on 'How to take part'

 West Wycombe Community Library is not participating in the Summer Reading Challenge. Please collect your pack from High Wycombe Library. Thank you.

Mischief Makers launches in libraries across Buckinghamshire Libraries on Saturday 14th July with and runs until Saturday 8th September.

Keep an eye out for special events and activities planned at Buckinghamshire Libraries for families over the summer to celebrate the Summer Reading Challenge.

Sue Wilkinson, CEO of The Reading Agency said: “At The Reading Agency, we believe that everything changes when we read and we know from our research how much fun families and children have when taking part in the Challenge. Mischief Makers offers intergenerational appeal and we hope this family friendly, accessible theme will inspire more children than ever to read over the holidays and make use of their local library throughout the summer and beyond."
