As the summer holidays approach, it is time for young people to take part in the children’s reading campaign in their local library and this year’s theme is “Record Breakers”.
Having teamed with Guinness World Records, the Summer Reading Challenge is a great opportunity to ensure that children keep up with reading during the 6 week break maintaining skills and confidence.
Collecting stickers as they go, young book worms will discover the weird, wonderful and wacky records from around the world in six different categories: Cool Tech, Way to Go! The Big Stuff, Animal Magic, People Power and Action! Adventure!
As part of the Record Breaker challenge, children, parents, carers, young volunteers, teachers, much-loved children’s authors and important figures in communities around the UK will be asked to make a pledge to help set a new Guinness World Records™ title for the Most Pledges Received for a Reading Campaign.
Libraries across the UK will be collecting pledges across the UK between Friday 10 and Monday 13 July and you can submit you pledge at Lichfield Library on 11th July from 10am to 3pm.
All you have to do is visit the library on Pledge Day, sign your pledge and take part in lots of fun activities.
Do you want to be a record breaker? Then visit Lichfield Library on 11th July 2015 and make your pledge.
