Summer Reading Challenge

Croome summer reading challenge

Join in the Worcestershire Libraries and Learning Service’s Summer Reading Challenge and enjoy the unique celebration of children’s books and reading at Croome.

The Summer Reading Challenge takes place every year and is a national scheme produced by The Reading Agency delivered by libraries. 

Children's reading can 'dip' during the long summer holidays if they don’t have regular access to books and encouragement to read for pleasure and the Summer Reading Challenge really helps by getting three quarters of a million children into libraries over the summer.

There is no other free reading activity that involves so many children, introduces families to their library, encourages children to choose books freely and independently and is endorsed by parents, teachers and the Department for Education.

The challenge is for all children aged 4 to 12 years to borrow and read six books in four months.

Entry to National Trust Croome is free to all families who are library members and whose children sign up to the Summer Reading Challenge on the day.

We will advertise the theme for the event and the dates for Croome as soon as they announced.
