The Summer Reading Challenge takes place every year during the summer holidays. All of the staffed and Community Libraries in Doncaster will be joining in with the challenge between July 14th and September 8th. This year we are taking a trip to Beanotown, where rumour has it there’s a treasure chest full of epic pranks waiting to be discovered. You can sign up at your local library, and by making three visits to the library and by reading books of your choice you can complete the Challenge. There are stickers to collect along the way, and you will receive a Medal and a Certificate when you have completed the challenge. The best thing of all is that you can join up for the challenge and it’s FREE to take part!
Every two months Doncaster Libraries and Waterstones invite you to read the Children’s Doncaster Read book and tell other people about your experience of reading for pleasure.
If you would like to get involved, you can loan the chosen Children’s Doncaster Read book from your library. Or you can purchase a copy from Waterstones at their Frenchgate branch.
If you would like to let us know what you thought about the books, you can review them directly once logged in to this website with a free upgraded account. You can also download and complete the review form below, and hand it in to your local library.
