Summer Reading Challenge

Henley Community Library is excited to be participating in the SUMMER READING CHALLENGE sponsored by the Warwickshire Library Service. The Challenge runs from 14 July to 10 September for children aged 4 to 12. Henley Communtiy Library has 8 specially trained volunteers to assist with the SUMMER READING CHALLENGE.

What is the Summer Reading Challenge?
Every year, thousands of families all over the country take part in the UK’s biggest reading event for children in libraries, the Summer Reading Challenge, run by the charity The Reading Agency. Every year there’s a different theme, and this year it’s called Story Lab. The aim of the challenge is to get children to read six books from their library during the summer holidays.

Enrolling your child
Story Lab is aimed at children aged 4 to 11 although it is open to any child. It is run in very nearly all libraries in the UK and it is completely free. Just come along to Henley Community Library during the summer holidays – the sooner you go the longer your child will have to read six books. Staff will enrol your child and give them a membership pack. You can go to any UK library that is running Story Lab and you don’t have to keep going to the same library. So if you are on holiday in the UK your child can still keep up with the Summer Reading Challenge.

You won’t need reminding about the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games this summer. But did you know that there are all kinds of cultural events also taking place to celebrate the games? The Reading Challenge is proud to join in the London 2012 Festival, the finale of the Cultural Olympiad, and to play its part by encouraging children to acquire a lifelong love of books, a legacy for their future.

What books can my child read?
The Summer Reading Challenge is designed for children of all ages and reading abilities. They can read any books they like – fact books, stories, joke books, picture books – it’s up to them. Audio books count too! As long as you’re borrowing them from the library, they all count.

Every child who reads six books gets a certificate, and most libraries are offering other rewards, too. For example, there are Bronze, Silver and Gold stickers for children reading 2, 4 and 6 books with secret website codes they can use online to unlock special animations. Just ask the library staff when you join up.

  7. There are many types of mascara available on the market
    that claim to lengthen eyelashes, increase volume and provide
    lasting effects. They serve as the classic accessory for any outfit and are always perfect.
    A long string of bright red glass beads could be one option or a neat necklace that has been crafted from bright red coral mixed with black crystal
    beads will look amazing. Cabochon Murano beads set in gold are perfect presents but
    none of them could match my romantic gift. Gift her a surprise that she will not be able to forget for the rest
    of her life. s imagination create unique jewellery designs that are limitless.
    But things have changed drastically now and designers have decided to turn their attention towards silver.

    Jewellery due to History – Commencing the history of Jewelry we got various types of
    emotional values attached then it. A acceptable chaplet on beading
    cilia may not authority acceptable appearance if the chaplet are a little heavier.
    I would love to see couples give jewellery as a gift to their guests of a small wedding.
