There's a world of fantasy and adventure waiting for children in all Glasgow Libraries this summer when they take part in ‘Mythical Maze’ the Tesco Bank Summer Reading Challenge 2014 from Monday 30th June to Friday 8th August.
Children aged 4 – 12 years can join in the adventure by finding their way around a labyrinth with the simple challenge to read 6 or more books over the summer holidays to keep up their reading skills.
As they read they will meet some larger than life characters from myths and legends (with a modern twist) including a Yeti, the Minotaur, Medusa, Mermaids and even the Loch Ness Monster! They can keep track of it all on their fold-up poster and collect stickers and other rewards along the way.
And now, all year round, the Summer Reading Challenge Website
, helps children keep track of their reading, find new books to read, take part in competitions and play games.
