Children join the challenge at www.summerreadingchallenge.org.uk Parents will need to set up an account first before setting up your children to make sure they have permission to take part. There are also games and activities, as well as book recommendations on the site.

What to read?You can ANYTHING you like – books you have at home, books you have bought home from school, library books you still have on loan. We’d love children and families to try out our eBook library, which you can browse here: https://norfolk.overdrive.com/library/childrens  It’s free, you just need a library card.

All of our eBook and eAudio library is free to borrow, you can use the Libby app on your tablet or smartphone, or read online on a laptop or PC. As well as books, we have lots of magazines and comics you can read on the Press Reader app or website, www.pressreader.com . From the Beano to horse-riding, gaming to pets, there are lots of topics to keep you interested.  To sign up for free, sign up with a library card, not a social media account.

If you’ve got younger children/new starters who’re not reading yet, being read to counts too! Anyone can take part.

Events and activities:We’re not able to run all the great events we would normally have in our libraries. Our Facebook page, Norfolk Libraries for Families, has lots of different things going on. Storytime, bounce and rhyme, book recommendations and activities – find out the latest events here: www.Facebook.com/NorfolkLibrariesForFamilies
