Summer Reading Challenge 2019 Space Chasers

July 9, 2019 11:44 AM

Bedford Libraries July 2019Bedford Borough Libraries are calling for children to sign up to read library books this summer as part of Space Chase Summer Reading Challenge 2019.

The 2019 Summer Reading Challenge asks children to borrow and read library books over the summer as part of this year's theme, Space Chase, inspired by the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.

Space Chase launches in libraries across Bedford Borough on Saturday 13 July and runs until Saturday 7 September.

Children will team up with the futuristic family The Rockets for an exciting space mission as they track down books nabbed by a mischievous band of aliens. As children read library books for the Summer Reading Challenge, they will receive special stickers, some with mysterious smells. By adding these stickers to their collectable mission folders, young readers will help the Rockets solve the clues, dodge asteroids and discover the missing books, having lots of fun and adventures along the way.

The Summer Reading Challenge is for children aged 4-11. To take part in Space Chase, all children need to do is sign up at their nearest library, where they will be given a Space Chase collector folder to keep a record of their Summer Reading Challenge journey.

Read six library books to achieve a Space Chase certificate or read 12 library books to receive a Space Chase wristband and 18 library books to achieve a Space Chase medal.

There is a whole programme of events and activities planned at Bedford Borough Libraries for families over the summer to celebrate the Summer Reading Challenge. Just contact your local library or go to www.bedford.gov.uk/libraries to find out how to take part.
