Summer reading challenge 2021 – Children/Adults

Every year Northamptonshire Libraries deliver the Summer Reading Challenge, which challenges children to read 6 books during the summer holidays. It has been proven that children who don’t continue reading during the summer have a lower reading age when they return to school in September than that before the summer.

You can find out more about the challenge on our webpage: or on our facebook page:

There is also an adult reading challenge this year called Fully Booked, this will run for 6 months, from the 10th July, Full information about this, and the companion podcast, can be found at
