This year The Reading Agency have partnered with over 20 organisations to put together the Summer of Reading. There’s a wide range of events and activities for children to encourage them to continue reading over the summer. These include read-alongs, games, quizzes, and children’s book clubs. Plus, the Summer Reading Challenge, which will be running in all Essex libraries throughout the school summer holidays.

Full details of the Summer of Reading events and activities can be found on The Reading Agency website. This will be updated weekly, from now until 17 September. We will also be promoting these on our social media channels over the summer, so keep up to date by following us on Facebook and Twitter.

Families are encouraged to share their reading activities on social media, using the hashtag #SummerofReading. Remember to tag @EssexLibraries in your Tweets and Facebook posts so we can engage with you.

Let’s make 2021 a Summer of Reading to remember!
