Mischief Makers at Wokingham Borough Libraries this Summer 2018

The Summer Reading Challenge 2018 will be called Mischief Makers, inspired by the much-loved iconic children’s title Beano, which celebrates its 80th anniversary. Children will explore a map of Beanotown to find the mysterious buried treasure and become ultimate mischief makers! Dennis, Gnasher and friends will help them solve clues and collect stickers, having lots of fun and adventures along the way!

The Summer Reading Challenge takes place every year during the summer holidays.

It’s fun, it’s FREE and you can sign up at any of our Librariesnow and you have until September 2nd. Just read six library books and collect a map of Beano-town and smelly stickers as you go. Collect a medal and a certificate when you complete the challenge. There will be lots of Mischief Makers events at libraries this summer.

Open to all primary school aged Library members.
