The sooner you sign up, the longer you will have to read lots of brilliant books and take part in fun activities!

Can I complete Space Chase through the Summer Reading Challenge website?

You can use the Space Chase website to keep track of the library books you’ve read, write reviews, play games, enter competitions and lots more!

Do I have to read books from the Space Chase list? Do I have to read books about space?
