Help children to love reading!

A new donations campaign will help ensure the Summer Reading Challenge reaches the children who need it most.

The Summer Reading Challenge is a reading for pleasure initiative run by The Reading Agency and libraries around the UK. It gets three quarters of a million children into libraries to experience the pleasure and fun of reading, and to help combat the dip in reading skills and confidence children often experience during the long summer holidays.
It only costs £3 for The Reading Agency and libraries to provide the Summer Reading Challenge free of charge to three disadvantaged children.  You can help bring the Summer Reading Challenge to another three children by donating £3. You can donate £3 by texting READ to 70080 or by visiting
