Children have created pavement graffiti at Clevedon Library during the launch of this year’s Summer Reading Challenge.
Children aged four to 11 are challenged with borrowing and reading six library books during the school holidays.
This year’s theme is Animal Agents, which will see participants collect stickers each time they read a book to solve a case.
Felicity Baker, North Somerset Council’s 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 their reading skills over the summer.
“Nearly 4,000 children joined the challenge in North Somerset libraries last year and we’re hoping even more will take part this year.”
Every child who completes the challenge, which ends on September 9, will win a medal, certificate and entry into a prize draw to win tickets to the Curzon cinema.
