The Summer Reading Challenge is back!

Posted by on 7 July 2017

Do you love books? Love reading? … Then read on

If you 10-18 years old the ImagiNation project could be just what you are looking for. Young people taking part in ImagiNation choose and read books and create an artistic or creative reaction to them. This could be a drawing inspired by a book, a poem or review and their creations will then be displayed on ‘belly bands’ on the books they’ve read to hopefully inspire other young people to read them too.  

You could also consider volunteering if you are over 12 years old to encourage and inspire others to discover what books can offer. You can get more information by asking at your local library or on the Suffolk libraries webpage

ImagiNation is designed to encourage and inspire you to discover what books can offer.  In 2016, 8,354 children signed up to take part in the Summer Reading Challenge in Suffolk supported by hundreds of volunteers. There is no other free reading activity that involves so many children, introduces families to their library, encourages children to choose books freely and independently and is endorsed by parents, teachers and the Department for Education.
