With the Summer Holiday’s having now begun across Aldridge-Brownhills I wanted to highlight once again the Summer Reading Challenge in our local Libraries.

This summer, children aged 4-11 can visit their local library to get involved with the Summer Reading Challenge. So, get ready for a whole load of team spirit, and plenty of fun with the latest collection for the 2023 sports and games themed Summer Reading Challenge: Ready, Set, Read!

Each book has been specially chosen by an expert group of readers for everybody taking part to enjoy. Call in to any one of our Libraries across the constituency for more information on how you can get involved.

The Summer Reading Challenge has been running since 1999 and helps to improve children’s reading skills and confidence of reading over the summer holidays, ensuring they are ready for their return to school.

This is a great initiative and one that I am delighted to be once again supporting. I am looking forward throughout the recess to visit local libraries in Aldridge-Brownhills who will be participating.
