The Summer Reading Challenge is a nationwide reading scheme for children aged 4 - 11 to take part in throughout the summer holidays. The children are challenged to read 6 books within 8 weeks ending on Saturday 7th September and in return receive free rewards to celebrate their achievement. At the end of the programme they receive a medal and a certificate. The Summer Reading Challenge is supported by national charity The Reading Agency.

Our summer programme of children's events and activities is listed below.

We also have regular Baby Rhyme Time and Children’s Story Time sessions at all Wandsworth Libraries. Find out more at
