This year's Summer Reading Challenge is well under way! Collect stickers, medals and prizes...all just for reading books! If your child's school have lots of pupils signing up and completing the challenge, the school can win a prize too!
Children aged 4 - 11 can take part in the challenge for free at any Barnet library until 14 September 2019.
There is also lots going on for under fives! Visit the 'Library Services for Under Fives' webpage
To coincide with the Summer Reading Challenge is a new reading challenge for adults, the Book Bingo! Read the books on any line of the card to be entered into a prize draw. Complete the whole card to be in with a chance to win an i-pad! This prize was generously donated by Borrowbox.
You can pick up a Book Bingo card from any Barnet library during staffed hours.
