The fantastic Summer Reading Challenge 2020 has started – and the theme is Let’s Get Silly! Libraries may be temporarily closed following government coronavirus restrictions, but our teams are still working with The Reading Agency to bring this year’s special project to children across Stoke-on-Trent.

The 2020 challenge will be a virtual one – with lots of amazing activities available online. Youngsters are being encouraged to set their own goals and families can go online to create a free profile to keep track of the books children read. There are special rewards to unlock along the way. The challenge website also includes quizzes, videos, games and more to keep children entertained at home.

Visit to sign up and make sure you keep an eye on Stoke-on-Trent Libraries’ Twitter and Facebook pages for more news on exciting activities linked to the Summer Reading Challenge 2020.
