Ready, Set, Read!

Please support #ReadySetRead this summer hosted by Wiltshire Libraries. 


Registration for this year's Summer Reading Challenge, 'Ready, Set, Read!' opens in Wiltshire libraries from Saturday 15 July, when children will be able to collect their own special reading folder and start their summer reading journey. It will run until Saturday 9 September.

The challenge is for children aged four to 11 to read six library books over the eight weeks of the summer in return for various fun prizes, including a medal and certificate on completion. It's completely free!

To support children taking part in the challenge and to encourage continued book borrowing, from 4 July 2023 Wiltshire Council libraries will no longer be charging fines for the late return of children's books. Existing charges for children's books will also be removed.
