If you’re aged between 12 and 19 years old and think you can read 6 books before the end of the summer join our teen reading challenge.
Collect a bookmark from any of our libraries. You’ll receive a stamp on your bookmark each time you take out a book. The challenge runs until 11 September 2016. There will be a prize draw for everyone who completes the challenge with a fabulous Young Adults goodie bag filled with books for young adults.
