Bexley libraries are calling for children to sign up to this year’s Summer Reading Challenge.

The challenge asks 4 -11 year olds to borrow and read any six library books over the summer.

The theme for the 2018 challenge is Mischief Makers, inspired by the children’s title Beano, which celebrates its 80th anniversary.

Children will explore a map of Beanotown to find a hidden treasure chest.

As they read the books, children will receive special stickers, some with mysterious smells.

Once stickers have been added to their map, young readers will solve clues and discover the treasure.

To take part, children need to sign up at a Bexley library.

The challenge launches in Bexley on July 14, running until September 8.

Cllr Peter Craske said the event was always “a highlight of the calendar” and urged Bexley children to sign up.
