This year’s Summer Reading Challenge has begun, with thousands of children across Hertfordshire expected to take part at their local library and a record number of volunteers supporting them.

This year has a Record Breakers theme. Collecting stickers as they go, young readers will aim to discover weird and wonderful records from around the world. Record Breakers packs are available in all Herts Libraries until Saturday, September 5, while stocks last.

Children who have completed the challenge will receive a certificate and a medal, and will be entered into a prize draw with the chance to win a ‘Golden Ticket’ for an exclusive author event.
