Creepy house summer reading challenge at Ardsley & Tingley library

 

Summer reading challenge completed for Zara Olivia Newton at Ardsley Library - well done Zara!

There were monsters a-plenty at the Ardsley and Tingley library for their special Creepy House summer reading event.

Encouraging children to keep reading over the long summer holiday is hugely important and I was delighted to be able to support the event.

I joined Zara, who had just completed the summer reading challenge and was receiving her certificate and medal. Others had completed it already or were one or two books away from their medals. All of them told me how much they had enjoyed visiting the library and chosing their books over the summer.

After making our Creepy House masks I read one of my favourites, “The Tiger Who Came to Tea” and talked about which books they had all enjoyed reading the most over the summer. There was then a terrifying Monsters’ Parade including big scary bees and plenty of monsters.

The summer reading challenge was a great opportunity to promote reading among children of all ages. I hope all the local parents and children enjoyed taking part.
