Library Reading Challenge – children are being encouraged to sign up for ‘The Big Friendly Read’ – the Summer Reading Challenge 2016, at their local Library, Woodcote. The ‘Big Friendly Read’ challenges children aged from 4 to 11 to extend their reading experience over the long summer holiday, giving them access to our wide range of books. The theme is based on “invention, mischief and friendship”, all ideas which are explored in Roald Dahl’s most famous books.


Children can join FREE at any Library in Oxfordshire. They will need to visit a Library three times during the summer and read six books. As they read their books, each child will receive collector cards that make up a set to complete their folder. Each card features an original piece of Quentin Blake artwork from a classic Roald Dahl tale, as well as some fun activities on the reverse. Kids are going to love collecting these!  These build to become a unique record of your child’s Summer Reading Challenge, and a great way to mark Dahl’s centenary.Woodcote Library will be running themed events throughout the summer holidays and we will make sure that we let you have our Summer Newsletter so you are kept informed of all that is going on here.
