The Magic of Books...

Films are fantastic and games are great but sometimes a book is all you need to sit back and relax.

At the Kent Libraries book corner all we do is eat, sleep and talk BOOKS

What can you find at the book corner?

Summer Reading Challenge 2015: Record Breakers

11 July – 12 September 2015

RecordBreakersReadingThe annual Summer Reading Challenge for children aged 4-11 encourages you to have fun reading over the summer holidays.


You can join at any Kent Library from 11 July – 12 September – it’s FREE and it’s FUN! By taking part in Record Breakers you read 6 books (you choose which ones) to get a poster and 3 sets of stickers - plus a certificate and a medal when you complete the challenge (while stocks last). You also get to find out about record breakers from all over the world. 


Check out the Summer Reading Challenge app for even more fun and games!


Last year, 16,000 Kent children got involved in the Summer Reading Challenge.


“I really enjoyed reading all of the books and I think it was a challenge because I don’t normally read that much"


“I really liked the smelly stickers - especially the ones that smell bad!”

Contact your local library for information on local events and activities that support the challenge.  Find your local library here.


The Reading Agency’s annual Summer Reading Challenge, delivered by libraries, gets three quarters of a million children into libraries to maintain their reading skills and confidence.
