Kent Libraries Summer Reading Challenge 2022 - Gadgeteers!

Get ready for Gadgeteers, this year’s Summer Reading Challenge, arriving online and in Kent Libraries this summer from Saturday 9 July to Saturday 10 September 2022. 

For more information about the Summer Reading Challenge, recommended reads, online activities and more visit our Gadgeteers page!

This year The Reading Agency are teaming up with Science Museum Group for a very special science-themed Challenge that will inspire your family to use your imagination and creativity! Gadgeteers will feature amazing books, awesome rewards, and plenty of ideas for cool experiments and activities to discover the science all around us.


Children aged 4 to 11 will be able to sign up for the Summer Reading Challenge at their nearest open library for FREE from Saturday 9 July. The Summer Reading Challenge, presented by The Reading Agency and funded by Arts Council England, encourages children aged 4 to 11 to set themselves a reading challenge to encourage reading for pleasure and to help prevent the summer reading 'dip'.


Children can read whatever they like in their chosen format: fiction, fact books, poetry, joke books, picture books, graphic novels, audio books and e-Books can all be used to complete the Summer Reading Challenge. Children receive special rewards as they progress and there's a certificate and medal for everyone who completes the Summer Reading Challenge at the library or online.


The Summer Reading Challenge is open to all primary school aged children and is designed for all reading abilities. Children can sign up for free at their nearest open library. Not a member of the library yet? Join your family online today.

Children can also earn 6 Kent Children’s University Learning Destination credits for reading 6 books and an extra credit for each library activity or event they attend.
