Looking for activities for your children this summer? Why not encourage them to join the Summer Reading Challenge taking place at all libraries across Bedfordshire, including Dunstable and Houghton Regis Library. This year's challenge launches on Friday 19th July.

Children can pop into the library any time from Friday 19th July to join. This year's challenge theme is “Marvellous Makers” - celebrating creativity in all its forms.

The Summer Reading Challenge is all about reading for fun, aiming to improve children’s reading skills and confidence. All children aged 4-11 are welcome to take part and simply asked to read 6 books of choice over the school holidays. They’ll also collect free rewards for their reading along the way. 

Your child can borrow and read any books, e-Books and audiobooks of their choice in any genre they like: fiction, fact books, poetry, joke books, picture books and graphic novels all count. And for younger children sharing a book with parents and caters counts. You will find lots of inspiration in the library and on the Summer Reading Challenge website.

Children who read 6 books and complete the challenge by 7th September will receive a certificate and medal.

There will also be lots of free craft activities taking place at the Library during the summer and a treasure hunt for those who complete the reading challenge.

Krisgar Entertainment will be visiting both Dunstable and Houghton Regis Library on Friday 2nd August 

African Drumming with Martin Hanson will be visiting both Dunstable and Houghton Regis Library on Friday 16th August
