Silly Squad Summer Reading Challenge 2020

17th Jun 2020

Silly Squad is a celebration of funny books, happiness and laughter. This year the Challenge will be delivered through a fun, immersive and safe online platform. The aim is to encourage children to challenge themselves to read any number of books which makes them happy, in digital or print format, an eBook borrowed from the Libraries NI online catalogue or books they already have at home. Children can sign up for free

 Throughout the summer there will be online activities, videos, quizzes, games and rewards to unlock along the way. Every child who completes their own Challenge will receive a downloadable certificate.

 Libraries NI offers a wide range of online reading material for children to enjoy with eBooks and audiobooks available to download and read. During lockdown we have seen a very significant increase in the use of these services particularly for children’s books. We also hope that libraries will reopen during the summer to allow families further access to books.

This is a great opportunity to continue to enjoy books and reading over the Summer months and we hope as many of our parents as possible will sign their children up.
