Tesco Bank Summer Reading Challenge

The Tesco Bank Summer Reading Challenge Scotland takes place every year during the summer holidays. You can sign up at your local library, then read at least six library books of your choice to collect special stickers and other incentives along the way – all for FREE. There’s a website to add to the fun too!

This year the Reading Agency, Tesco Bank and Scottish libraries are delighted to present Animal Agents - a whole host of clever creatures, ready to solve all kinds of crimes! This band of furry, slippery and feathered friends is specially trained to use their skills and natural instincts to unravel mysteries – with a huge helping of fun along the way.

Are you up for the challenge?

See below for a list of activities taking place at your local library. Kids' sign up and more fun available at www.animal-agents.org.uk
