Summer Read Challenge

Animal-AgentsAnimal Agents Summer Reading Challenge 2017

Have you heard about the strange goings-on at your local library this summer? Meet the Animal Agents, and join the Summer Reading Challenge in all Tameside libraries – it’s your chance to solve a mystery and catch a crafty crook!
 

 

The Reading Agency and libraries are delighted to present the 2017 Summer Reading Challenge, Animal Agents - a whole host of clever creatures, ready to solve all kinds of crimes! This band of furry, slippery and feathered friends is specially trained to use their skills and natural instincts to unravel mysteries – with a huge helping of fun along the way.

Everyone aged 4-11 can sign up to take part in Animal Agents at Tameside libraries this summer holidays. It’s fun, friendly and absolutely free! All you have to do is read 6 library books and collect rewards along the way. The challenge launches on Saturday 8 July and runs until Christmas, so there is plenty of time to get on with that reading!
