Young readers across North Somerset are being encouraged to head to their local library this summer.
Some weird and wacky world records are going to be discovered by children as part of North Somerset Council’s Record Breakers Summer Reading Challenge 2015.
Parents or carers can take children aged four to 11 to sign up to the challenge for free at a North Somerset library from tomorrow (Saturday).
The youngsters will then be encouraged to read six or more books, and they will be able to collect stickers and a poster over three more library visits in the summer. Every child who completes it by September 12 will get a certificate and a medal.
Cllr Felicity Baker, executive member for libraries, said: “Parents and carers love the annual challenge organised by The Reading Agency charity and public libraries.

“Not only is it fun and free, it helps children maintain reading skills over the summer. More than 4,300 children joined the challenge in North Somerset libraries last year and we are hoping even more will take part in a record-breaking summer for reading this year.”
