The Big Friendly Read is here!

The Big Friendly Read

This year The Reading Agency and Tesco Bank Summer Reading Challenge Scotland celebrate 100 years of the world’s favourite storyteller Roald Dahl, with The Big Friendly Read.

Children are challenged to read six books from the library during the school holidays. They can choose any six books, including picture books, fact books, ebooks and audiobooks. For each completed book, they’ll receive a limited edition Quentin Blake collector card, and those who read six books will get a medal and certificate.

We’ve got lots of fun activities happening throughout the holidays at your local library too. This year we’re teaming up with Edinburgh Art Festival and other partners so there will be loads of opportunities to draw, make, design and create in libraries.

Pop into your local library and join in the fun for free.

The Summer Reading Challenge runs until 27 August 2016.
