Warm up your winter with books

The Winter Reading Challenge

Another exciting time is coming for our young readers. From Monday 2 December they can join the Winter Reading Mini Challenge, a smaller version of the Summer Challenge. It comes with a virtual badge to unlock, a certificate to be awarded and lots of activities and books to choose from.

To take part you need just to:

You have until Monday 13 January 2020 to read your books.

This year the challenge has been inspired by “Pugs of the Frozen North”, a frosty adventure who features lots of pugs, written by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre. Dogs and snow - is there any better combination for your winter reading?

To celebrate the challenge we have partnered with children’s author Fiona Barker. She will lead dog-themed interactive storytimes, with crafts and singing throughout Bracknell Forest. The dates are:

  • Wednesday 4 December, 3:30pm, at Crowthorne Library
  • Thursday 5 December, 10:30am at Birch Hill Library
  • Thursday 5 December, 3:30pm at Sandhurst Library
  • Friday 6 December, 3:00pm at Whitegrove Library

Ask the local library staff to book your place. Each session costs £1.50 each session.

These events are best suited for 3 to 7 years, but anyone is welcome.
