This year Aberdeen City Libraries have a brand new reading challenge: Aberdeen Reads! This challenge is open to everyone, so get family and friends involved and encourage each other to keep reading over the Summer holidays!
Aberdeen Reads will run from Friday 5 July until Saturday 24 August, and will challenge you to read for at least 6 minutes every day. All kinds of reading will count: picture books, fiction, non-fiction, e-books, talking books, magazines, news articles…anything you enjoy!
There will be mini-challenges each week to help you explore the library and find new things to read. Keep an eye on Aberdeen City Libraries’ website and social media to discover the new challenges as they are announced each Saturday.
Exciting free events will take place in libraries throughout the holidays for families taking part in the Challenge – don’t forget to book your place!
Everyone who takes part in Aberdeen Reads will be entered into a prize draw, and those who complete 3 or more mini-challenges will be entered into an additional draw.
Registration is open from Saturday 22 June, so visit your local library to join the challenge!
Regular Bookbug Story and Rhyme sessions will continue in libraries across the city throughout the holiday period.
