In Dudley Libraries Summer Reading Challenge children are encouraged to read 6 books, it can be any length from picture books to longer chapter storybooks to non-fiction ones or they can listen to 6 talking books. This years theme is Space Chase. Any child from toddlers to 11 year olds can join.
When they join they receive a bookmark and an activity pack.
After they have read or listened to 2 books they get a Space Chase booklet and 1 set of smelly stickers.
After they have read or listened to 4 books they get a 2nd set of smelly stickers.
After they have read or listened to all 6 books they get a 3rd set of smelly stickers, a certificate, a medal, a DVD voucher and a free swimming voucher, the swimming voucher can be used at Dudley, Halesowen or Stourbridge (Crystal) Leisure Centres. Also for completing the challenge they are entered into our prize draw where we have lots of prizes such as tickets to Laser Quest, West Midlands Safari Park, Dudley Canal, Dudley Zoo, Tenpin Bowling, Scallywags, Zig Zags, Full Throttle Raceway, Himley Bonfire, Trentham Monkey Forest and places to eat such as Harvester, Five Guys and Nandos.
We also have lots of fun space themed crafts taking place that are all completely free of charge, these must be booked onto to guarantee a place though. This can be done either over the phone or coming in.
